On January, 27th 2018 the CEI-ES hosted the Kick off meeting of the project NAMIRG, that was attended by all project partners who gathered to agree upon first steps to be made towards projects’ successful implementation. Partners’ have already reached a common understanding on the analysis of the existing protocols, procedures and equipment for fire-protection interventions. Each partner will address their national, regional or local institution to collect all available data and provide feedback for the delivery of the first report. The latter represents the basis for the NAMIRG guidelines providing concrete information on how the group will be formed, governed and how will it act. It is understood as a tool on the disposal of the three countries in case of fire incidents in the sea.
The selected staff coming from the three countries will be trained by selected experts: a Fincantieri representative on fire protection aspects, Finnish experts and some experts form other European MIRG groups. The final stage of the training will consist in the exercise at open sea, with the entire group in action.
