The Directorate for Emergency Management keeps the pace of educational events by announcing another important event. At the beginning of the 2020 are scheduled two important actions - Table Top Exercise (TTX) and Awareness Day on "Reactions on the Aftermath of an Earthquake". The aim is to test the reactions systems and procedures and to assess the quality of that reaction, as well as the integration of various levels - from local to the national level, up to the regional and broader international level of reactions and disaster recovery efforts.
The series of events will start on 22 January and will end with the Awareness Day activities on 24 January in the medieval coastal city of Herceg Novi, severely affected by seismic events in 1979. This wonderful city is located in the extreme north-western part of the coast of Montenegro, on the border with Croatia.
Representatives of a host of different institutions are expected to attend and contribute to these events: from Municipal Protection & Rescue Team, Touristic Organisation, Electric Power Company, Firefighting teams, Mountaineering club Subra, Radio amateurs, representatives of adjacent municipalities of Kotor and Tivat, up to representatives of the National Institute for Hydrometeorology and Seismology, and the Head of Directorate for Emergency Management of the Ministry of Interior, Mr. Mirsad Mulic.
The TTX is expected to take place in a wonderful venue of The Palmon Bay hotel
