  3. The Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre (EADRCC)

Since 1998 is the Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre (EADRCC) NATO’s principal civil emergency response mechanism in the Euro-Atlantic area. It is active all year round, operational on a 24/7 basis, and involves NATO’s 29 Allies and all partner countries. The Centre functions as a clearing-house system for coordinating both requests and offers of assistance mainly in case of natural and man-made disasters. Its mandate was gradually broadened to cover also support to countries in case of terrorist attacks. The EADRCC was so far involved in more than 60 operations like floods, forest fires and earthquakes. The EADRCC also organises annual international exercise and maintains a list of national capabilities in case of a CRBN attack against civilian population.
