International Models of Emergency Management and Disaster Response

WEbinars 2021Capacity Building International (CBI) in cooperation with TIEMS started our monthly series of webinars in 2021 that highlighted and compared various European/International/National domestic emergency management models. Guests presented their different models, approaches, and systems used in emergency management. These webinar series were an excellent opportunity to hear from experts in different countries around the world. The pasts program is found below, and the videos can also be found on the following link: TIEMS & CBI Webinar Videos. The results of the first year of our webinar series of International Models in Emergency Management were fantastic with 1,837attendees from 74countries.
We continued all through 2022 and we have just started the 2023 TIEMS - CBI Webinar Series, and more countries are expected to be presenting their systems, and we are also presenting R&D projects and tools and systems for improving resilience. We started with a kick-off session in 2023 on the 19th of January with presentation of one of the results from the IMPETUS EU project, namely presenting of the Firearm detection Tool.

We also like to know if our listeners have ideas or requests for speakers? Join us each month in 2023 and let us know!
