City of Dortmund, Fire Department

Stadt Dortmund, Feuerwehr

The Fire Department of Dortmund (FDDO) is the largest fire department in its local area and the sixth largest in Germany. It is responsible for fire rescue operations as well as emergency management in the city. In 2006 the Institute for Fire Service and Rescue Technology (IFR) was founded as a department for the research into more efficient but practicable technology and methods. A close contact with other German and European fire departments and related organisations ensures a knowledge transfer and an understanding for new technology and methods.

Furthermore: FDDO is involved into the supra-local emergency support concept of the federal state North Rhine Westphalia. Additionally, the FDDO runs one of seven Analytical Task Forces (ATF) located in Germany embedded in the nation-wide CBRN incident response concept. These Task Forces are highly specialized mobile operation groups with appropriate special competences that go beyond the possibilities of first appliance. All of the ATF-units are interlinked with each other. For mission related tactical reasons, the ATF are established at existing locations, which are particularly experienced in the field of CBRN-threat prevention, as Dortmund. The ATF guarantees comprehensive support of the mission management on site in the context of complex CBRN-situations.

Website of FDDO

Die Feuerwehr Dortmund ist die größte Feuerwehr des Ruhrgebiets und die sechst größte in Deutschland. In das Aufgabenfeld fallen neben der Brandbekämpfung auch der Rettungsdienst und der Katastrophenschutz. 2006 wurde das Institut für Feuerwehr- und Rettungsdiensttechnologie (IFR) als Forschungsabteilung der Feuerwehr Dortmund gegründet, um eine effizientere und praxisorientiertere Forschung im Bereich der Technologie- und Konzeptentwicklung zu etablieren. Dabei steht besonders ein enger Kontakt und hoher Informationsaustausch mit anderen Feuerwehren, sowie BOS auf nationaler und internationaler Ebene im Mittelpunkt.

Die Feuerwehr Dortmund ist Teil der überörtlichen Bereitschaften des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalens und hält darüber hinaus eine von bundesweit sieben Einheiten der Analytischen Task Force (ATF) vor, die im Falle eines CBRN Zwischenfalls alarmiert werden. Sie sind hoch spezialisierte und mobile Einheiten, deren Gerätschaften und Kompetenzen weit über die normal kommunal vorgehaltenen Einsatzmittel hinausgehen. Die ATF-Einheiten sind bereits untereinander vernetzt. Dies ermöglicht eine schnelle Alarmierung der ATF, deren Gerätschaften auch zu Luft an die Einsatzstelle gebracht werden können. Aus einsatztaktischen Gesichtspunkten werden die Einheiten an festen Standorten vorgehalten, deren Träger besondere Erfahrung mit CBRN-Einsätzen vorweisen können, wie z.B. Dortmund. Die ATF bietet der Einsatzleitung vor Ort umfassende Unterstützung im Bereich der CBRN Gefahrenabwehr.

University of Paderborn

Universität Paderborn

The research group “Computer application and integration in construction and planning” (C.I.K.) at Paderborn University (UPB) evaluates and applies information technologies in design and planning of products as well as in the field of public safety and security. Main research and key activities include system and requirements analysis in close cooperation with stakeholders; conceptual design and implementation of information systems to support humans in complex situations and evaluation of research results and quality management in the design process with focus on ergonomic issues. In collaborative research projects the C.I.K. bridges the gap between science, industry and users. This is emphasised by close connections with fire brigades, other relief organisations, various training centres and operators of critical infrastructures. The focus on realistic scenarios supports the transfer of research results into practice. In the context of information management and decision support various methods are scientifically analysed and applied. Thereby the IT-based collection, processing and target-oriented provision of information are studied and implemented. In this regard, the use of business process management methods and semantic technologies are a major priority in current projects.

University of Rome “Tor Vergata”

Università degli Studi di Roma “Tor Vergata”

The University of Rome “Tor Vergata” was established in 1982: it is therefore a relatively young University. It was designed on the model of Anglo-Saxon campuses: it stretches on 600 hectares and hosts important research institutions, such as CNR and the Italian Space Agency – ASI, ENEA, ESA-ESRIN, the National Institute of Astrophysics, Monte Porzio Catone Observatory and the National Institute of Nuclear Physics. Right from the start their presence has contributed to turning “Tor Vergata” into a dynamic research pole.

Furthermore, the Campus hosts one of the most modern hospitals in Italy, the University Hospital Tor Vergata, a care and research centre where the Medical School is active as well.

Since 2009, Tor Vergata organizes the international Master Courses in Protection Against CBRNe Events, and became the first and only university that awards students with an Academic title on CBRNe.

The Master courses, organized jointly by the Department of Industrial Engineering and the Medical School, can boast the status of NATO selected, and cooperation agreements with OPCW, the Italian Ministry of the Interior, Ministry of Defence, Presidency of the Council of Ministers, and other national and international public and private entities operating in the field of CBRNe.

Fin dall'inizio la loro presenza ha contribuito a trasformare “Tor Vergata” in un polo di ricerca dinamico.

Il Campus ospita uno degli ospedali più moderni in Italia, l'Ospedale Universitario Tor Vergata, un centro di cura e ricerca dove è attiva anche la Scuola di Medicina.

Dal 2009 Tor Vergata organizza i Master internazionali in Protection Against CBRNe Events e diventa così la prima e unica università che premia gli studenti con un titolo accademico su CBRNe.

I corsi Master, organizzati congiuntamente dal Dipartimento di Ingegneria Industriale e dalla Scuola di Medicina, possono vantare lo status di NATO selected e accordi di cooperazione con OPCW, Ministero dell'Interno, Ministero della Difesa, Presidenza del Consiglio dei Ministri e altri enti pubblici e privati nazionali ed internazionali operanti nel settore della CBRNe.

National CBRN Centre

The National CBRN Centre, part of Counter Terrorism Policing, brings together the emergency services to protect and prepare the UK against the CBRN threat.

Working together to support, strengthen and assure a resilient CBRN capability for the UK, Chief Officers from the Police, Fire and Ambulance services lead the Centre's strategy in partnership with military and government agencies. Seconded emergency services personnel deliver the Centre’s tri-service strategy to promote an interoperable, efficient, robust and proportionate approach in managing and responding to the CBRN threat.

The Centre takes cognizance of the Counter Terrorism Policing national and international strategies, which reflects the government's counter terror strategy CONTEST. The Centre shares the national vision to reduce the risk of terrorism to the UK and its overseas interests, and to keep the public safe from terrorism.

The Centre's key strategic work streams are:

  • Support emergency services and partners to deliver and develop their CBRN capability to mitigate the impact of a terrorist incident. This includes the provision of 24-hour operational CBRN support to emergency responders, activity to support warning and information awareness campaigns and Command and Control doctrine development.
  • Strengthen emergency service and partner capabilities to provide improved public protection. This includes training and continuous professional development for responders, control rooms and wider partners, facilitation of equipment and mobilization strategies and, increasingly, protective activities to target harden and choke access routes for illicit materials.
  • Assure against standards to inform strategic direction and prioritization of efforts. This includes testing and exercising, sharing learning and the development of international knowledge exchange and expertise.
