Summary

In the course Emergency Tactics, students will learn knowledge and skills in the field of deploying units and resources in large emergency incidents, which may even lead to a state of emergency. This is primarily a strategic level of management that requires very close cooperation with regional governors, mayors of municipalities with extended power, other municipalities and with central administrative authorities. Students will also learn about the lower level of management (tactical and operational) and about relation to common types of activities of units of Integrated Rescue System and type plans of central administrative authorities. From the perspective of international cooperation, students will be introduced to the EU Civil Protection Mechanism and its instruments. Students will also learn about other forms of international cooperation, such as cross-border assistance, bilateral and humanitarian assistance, including UN participation in the system.
