FORMATEX23

The Full Operational Response to Major Accidents Triggered by natural hazards – Full Scale EXercise 2023 or “FORMATEX23”, is coordinated by the Fire Service Association of Upper Austria, aiming at conducting a full-scale (multi-national, multi-level, multi-agency) exercise that involves national and regional emergency response organizations to improve and strengthen cooperation among European members in the context of major CBRN accidents triggered by natural hazards.  FORMATEX23 aims to improve capabilities of agencies, emergency services and the Union Civil Protection Mechanism in preparedness for and response to Natech disasters. It focuses on emergency response and management during complex multi hazard events with a focus on CBRN hazards and environmental pollution. The core of FORMATEX23 is a full-scale exercise that will deal with the impact of CBRN events, like toxic spills or the release of radioactive material, triggered by a flood event. UCPM Modules active in the field of CBRN hazards, as well as technical experts will get the opportunity to train in a multi-hazard environment together with local civil protection and emergency response experts in the scope of a full-scale exercise.
