GMES emergency management: Significant achievements after 2 years of intensive work

During 2010, the GMES emergency management service developed by the SAFER project has been activated 50 times in response to natural disasters (e.g. earthquake in Haiti, floods in Pakistan and Central Europe) and to industrial accidents (e.g. toxic mud spill in Hungary).

On these different occasions, SAFER provided civil protection authorities and rescue teams with rapid mapping products and thematic products supporting the emergency phase as well as the preparedness / prevention and recovery phases.

Concrete examples of the SAFER’s products are provided in the Flash Info produced by the project as well as on this website (visit the page dedicated to SAFER for more details).
