|The ERCC monitors events around the globe 24/7 and ensures rapid deployment of emergency support in the aftermath of a major disaster.
Specialised teams and equipment, such as forest firefighting planes, search and rescue, and medical teams can be mobilised at short notice for deployments inside and outside Europe through a direct link with civil protection authorities.
Following a request for assistance through the European Union Civil Protection Mechanism (UCPM), the ERCC acts as a deployment hub between all EU Member States, Participating States, the affected country and civil protection and humanitarian experts, coordinating the delivery of assistance to disaster-stricken countries.
In-kind assistance such as relief items, expertise, civil protection teams and specialised equipment are provided.
The portal shows ACTIVE Emergencies and ECHO DAILY Flash reports around the world. User can generate interactive maps based on country, continent, and an extensive list of emergency event types.
The daily map provides an overview of a significant event or situation on a daily basis. The maps are related to DG ECHO humanitarian and civil protection interventions or depict events that are expected to have humanitarian consequences.
