In 2019 and 2020 six exercises for Civil Protection Modules and other Response Capacities will be conducted throughout Europe. Urban Search and Rescue Modules, Emergency Medical Teams and other Response capacities gwill get the chance to train their preparedness for a deployment in the context of a full-scale exercise.

The tenth EU MODEX cycle is on hold

On behalf of the EU Directorate-General for Civil Protection & Humanitarian Aid the consortium of the EU MODEX Lot3 and Lot5 is commissioned to conduct six Module Exercises within the EU Civil Protection Mechanism from November 2019 to September 2020.

The next planned exercises of the tenth cycle at Passo Tonale/Italy from 3rd to 6th March 2020, in Timisoara/Romania from 6th to 9th May 2020 and Eisenerz/Austria from 4th to 7th June 2020 are cancelled and we are working on catching up this exercise at a later stage. In the face of the outbreak of the SARS-COV-2 / COVID-2019 virus, EU MODEX has the responsibility to contribute its part of fighting the virus. We hope the Corona-outbreak will be over soon. Stay healthy!

EU MODEX continues in 2019/20

Civil protection and disaster response teams applied for participation in an EU Module Exercise for 2019/20. Lot 3 and 5 will conduct four USAR and two medical exercises within five different Member States of the Union Civil Protection Mechanism. Please click on the map to find locations and dates.
