Final demonstration of CRISMA Pilot E in Wurzburg, Germany
The final demonstration of CRISMA project’s Pilot E took place from 24th to 26th April 2015 in Würzburg, Germany.
Organised by the German Red Cross and the Red Cross of Bavaria, the final demonstration focused on mass-casualty incidents,
with special attention to resource and capacity planning and training of civil protection units. Alongside the live demonstration of
the simulation tool, a full-scale field exercise was carried out to provide practical examples for the use of the Pilot E v1-tool.
The main objective of CRISMA Pilot E is to support the activities of first responders. The pilot analyses a multi-risk scenario with focus
on multi-organisation reaction options and strategies, and their potential outcomes as well as efforts. The pilot is divided in two phases.
The first phase included a scenario with a bus accident resulting in 20-40 injured persons in Bavaria on a rural-district level. Phase 2 is
based on a mass casualty incident during a public event. To address the multi-hazard aspect during the second phase, the phase one scenario was
extended by resource / capacity management activities.
