The Danish Emergency Management Agency (DEMA) will host the Council of the Baltic Sea States’ (CBSS) Baltic Excellence Programme in Civil Security at its training facility in Tinglev on 18-20 November 2019. Three modules and one alumni conference has previously been organised in the field of civil security since 2013. More than 100 alumni from all 11 Member States of the CBSS have completed the courses. The organisers from DEMA hope that the module in Tinglev will contribute to deeper knowledge and stronger personal connections of the current and future leaders of key civil security organisations in the region.
The Programme is part of the Danish Chairmanship in the CBSS Civil Protection Network. With a combination of theory and practice, the Programme seeks to create a network of civil protection actors in the Baltic Sea Region and equip them with the tools and information needed to manage cross-border collaboration and projects between diverse organisations in an intercultural context.
Civil Protection Network members are emergency agencies, fire and rescue services and ministries of interior. The Civil Protection Network coordinates joint measures in the field of civil protection, critical infrastructure protection and emergency preparedness issues in the Baltic Sea Region.
