Police forces and first responders in Europe are constantly facing new challenges and threats, particularly in relation to extreme weather and terrorist attacks. Coping with these complex events requires more efficient collaboration across agencies, organizations and countries.


The European research project BRIDGE (Bridging resources and agencies in large-scale emergency management) contributes to this by developing technical and organizational solutions for improving emergency management in the EU Member States.


The solutions will provide technical support for multi-agency collaboration in large-scale emergency relief efforts, ensuring interoperability, harmonization and co-operation across all levels of emergency management.
