What happens when emergency services and/or Civil Protection organisations Civil Protectionin case of crisis orcatastrophe are personally affected? If a wave of influenza strikes the volunteers? If a power outage shuts down the IT-systems responders or the situation center is unusable due to flooding? How could citizens without any operational experience support the emergency management agencies as ad-hoc-volunteers?
This is the main focus of the joint project REBEKA ("Resilienz von Einsatzkräften bei eigener Betroffenheit in Krisenlagen" / "resilience of emergency services during own consternation in crisis situations") funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
