POP - ALERT
Training 4 Resilience have joined with 10 other consortium members from 6 different European Countries to undertake POP-ALERT - a project financed by the European Commission’s 7th framework programme which runs from 2014 to 2016.
The main objective of POP-ALERT is to prepare societies and populations to cope with crisis and disasters in a rapid, effective and efficient way by blending traditional crisis preparedness and first reaction strategies with the use of innovative and contemporary tools.
During the project, the consortium will explore how best to alert and support action by citizens under crisis conditions in familiar and unfamiliar surroundings using generic methodologies,strategies, training and a mix of technologies designed to improve population preparedness and increase community resilience.
POP-ALERT seeks to improve the current practices revolving around the use of messaging and cultural sharing technologies to create awareness using technologies and approaches that offer the best form of accessibility and penetration by citizens and authorities.
A pilot study will be conducted in order to test the generic methodologies and to
assess their effectiveness in raising an improved level of preparedness of the community.
