The Northumberland Fire and Rescue Service (United Kingdom) hosts the second meeting of the e-PPR project

Next 29th June, the second transnational meeting of the e-PPR project (e-Learning for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural Disasters) will take place in Cramlington - United Kingdom. The Northumberland Fire and Rescue Service will be joined by Fire and Rescue organisations and schools from five other countries.

The aim of the e-PPR project is to address the need for education and training on natural disasters. In order to achieve this, the six project partners will work on developing four e-learning modules on the prevention, preparedness and response to natural disasters, throughout the duration of the project.

The meeting in Northumberland will be a key part of the project as the Fire and Rescue organisations will present the educational content of the e-learning modules they have developed during the last few months. Following the presentations, partners will then discuss and plan the next step of the project: the adaptation of the educational content to each target group. 

This cross-sectoral and cross-border partnership is an initiative of Frederikssund-Halsnæs Fire & Rescue Service (Denmark) in collaboration with National College “Vasile Goldis” (Romania), Lohusuu School (Estonia), Northumberland Fire and Rescue Service (United Kingdom), Vilnius County Fire and Rescue Board (Lithuania) and the City Council of Alcalá de Guadaíra (Spain). The e-PPR project is co-funded by the European Commission within the framework of the Erasmus + Programme.
