3rd STORM Stakeholders meeting – Lisbon – Museu de Etnologia

Ten Portuguese Stakeholders met in Lisbon on October 30th 2017 for the STORM third stakeholders meeting.

The STORM team started the discussion with stakeholders around two issues:

Addressing an Emergency (for authorities and sites)

When an emergency occurs caused by a sudden hazard, what will be your role in the two phases we included in the “Quick Assessment” situation.

How you plan to react to natural disasters in terms of:

Securing phase (only emergency forces allowed to enter the red zone): it is important for the project to understand the decision tree operating during the disaster, when the traditional governance is suspended. We would like to know who is coordinating the intervention at crater level, who is coordinating at site level and who is providing the necessary resources to act.

First aid phase (professional are performing the first aid actions): when the red zone is going to be open and the traditional governance suspension is ended; how the first aid is managed in terms of priorities of intervention and mechanisms to engage professionals

Please explain also if simulation are planned at site level and if “preparedness”, is planned and considered as a priority; in this case what is the procurement process and how preparedness actions/materials are selected.

Mitigation services and actions (for business actors)

Being an entity who should make business out of its services/products, how you consider your organisation could participate in the process:

Participating to the first aid phase providing services or materials;

Providing materials, training, services in the preparedness phase,

Supplying services and materials for the prevention and/or for the full recovery.

If you have experience in the field of emergency or slow damage recovery, could you explain briefly how the procurement process is running. It is important to us to better know criteria adopted for services selection more than administrative issues.
