The project will produce the following main results:

  • Create specific volunteer’s profiles, who will be collaborating inside Volunteer’s Fire Protection Organizations, for the optimization of the preparedness activities and, furthermore, for dealing with people's needs in the post-disaster phase;
  • volunteers will be trained, through e-learning sessions, for working in an international environment, so as they could be available, not only during emergencies at the national level, but also for supporting volunteer’s teams in other EU countries;
  • create a website for potential firefighter volunteers;
  • create groups on social media, so that trainees will have the chance to know each other during the project period, for better cooperation in case of an emergency;
  • create an innovative mobile application game, as a tool for assessment the volunteer’s competences as well as for self-evaluation.
