The   Consortium   representatives,   the   local   partner   and   the   co-trainers   of   participating modules    took    part    in    this    planning    meeting.   The    participating    modules    are    High Capacity   Pumping   from   Germany   and   Italy,   the   Flood   Rescue   Using   Boats   from France and a Technical Assistance and Support Team from Italy. The   French   exercise   will   take   place   at   the   end   of   April   in   the   Department   Bouche   du Rhone,    France    and    will    last    four    days,    including    travel    days,    with    non-disrupted exercise   time   play   of   minimum   36   hours   to   test   the   24/7   operational   capacity   of   the modules   as   well   as   TAST   and   EUCPT.   Time   compression   will   be   used   to   be   able   to cover   all   the   major   phases   of   a   real   deployment.   During   the   realistic   field   exercises that   will   last   4   days,   the   teams   being   tested   on   their   preparedness   to   be   deployed. They   are   supported   and   observed   by   experienced   trainers   from   different   countries. The   exercises   are   designed   to   test   modules’   capabilities   and   enhance   the   cooperation between    the    teams    and    experts.    Furthermore,    the    teams    will    experience    the operational and political complexity of international aid. The    Consortium    is    especially    interested    in    modules    particular    training    needs    and expectations   for   such   exercises   so,   during   the   planning   meeting   the   co-trainers   of participating   modules   were   addressing   these   aspects   together   with   the   exercise   staff and   the   French   planning   team   in   order   to   fine   tune   the   exercise   events   and   injects.     The   participants   have   shared   the   tasks   for   planning   and   conducting   this   exercise,   the leadership    and    administrative    and    financial    arrangements    of    the    actions.   The    co- trainers   delivered   presentations   about   their   teams’   configuration,   technical   information about   the   equipment,   altogether   with   the   expected   learning   objectives   aimed   to   be achieved.   Addressing   the   preparedness   for   the   exercise,   the   planning   meeting   was   looking   over the   learning   objectives   aimed   to   be   achieved,    the   scenarios,   participants,   logistic   and organizational   issues.      The   activities   were   organized   by   “National   Center   for   Disaster Management"   (CN-APELL)   as   leading   partner   of   the   Consortium   together   with   the “Ecole Nationale Superieure des Officiers Sapeures Pompiers”. Additional   information   about   locations,   offered   conditions   and   specific   features   of   the training   areas   were   provided   later   during   the   site   visit   to   the   locations   where   the exercise incident will be simulated. The deputy director of ENSOSP, Jean-Michel Langlais  attended the meeting. Mr.   Gerard   Guerin,   the   EC   representative,   has   participated   in   the   planning   meeting, and    presented    to    the    audience    the    European    vision    related    to    the    field    module exercises for this cycle.

B. The exercise

The   exercise   held   in   Arles,   Bouche   du   Rhone   Region,   France   between   24 th    and   27 th   April   was   the   last   exercise   of   the   modules   field   exercises   cycle   2017-2018,   LOT   II   exercises   for   the   flood   related   modules,   medical   capabilities,   civil   protection    experts   ad TAST.   The   exercise   consisted   of   a   4-days   field   operation   and   focused   mainly   on   operational cooperation    of    all     involved    participants    within    the    framework    of    the    Union    Civil Protection   Mechanism.   Based   on   a   scenario    in   a   third   country   –   Modulistan   -   affected by    a    large-scale    flood,    the    exercise    represented    a    good     opportunity    to    test    the coordination,   interoperability,   internal   working   procedures   and   the   self-    sufficiency   of participating modules in a situation as close as possible to reality.   Different   types   of   modules   from   France   -   Flood   Rescue   Using    Boats    and   Emergency Remotely   Piloted   Aerial   Systems ,   Germany   -   High   Capacity   Pumping,   Italy   -   High Capacity Pumping took part in the exercise. The   activities   of   the   modules   in   the   field   were   coordinated   by   an   international   team   of experts         -   European   Civil   Protection   Team,   being   composed   with   members   from   five countries   –   DE,   FR,   SE,   LV,   NL   and   a   Liaison   Officer   from   European    Response   and Coordination   Center   (ERCC)   from   Brussels. The   activity   of   this   team   was   supported    by a Technical Support and Assistance Team from Italy.   The   exercise   was   organized   by   CN   APELL-RO,   as   leading   partner,   together   with   the French   Partners   -   Direction   Générale   de   la   Sécurité   Civile   et   de   la   Gestion   des   Crises and   ENSOSP   -   Ecole   Nationale   Supérieure   des   Officiers   de   Sapeurs-Pompiers   and   a consistent      corps      of      volunteers      in      compliance      with      the      service      contract T2/NOECHO/SER/2016/738038 signed with the European Commission. The   exercise   was   attended   by   163   participants   -   modules,   EUCPT,   observers   and   staff members.      The   modules   operated   on   a   24/7   basis   receiving,   both   day   and   night,   tasks and    being    requested    to    provide    interventions    in    various    locations    of    the    affected region.    The    French    colleagues    have    mobilized    more    than    200    professionals    and volunteers   as   role-players   and   an   important   number   of   vehicles   and   equipment.   We would   like   to   take    the   opportunity   to   thank   to   our   French   colleagues   for   the   effort   they invested for the success of the exercise .
