Exercise Sicily Italy

Exercise scenario

The exercise in Sicily took place from 4 to 7 October 2016. Temperatures were high, which allowed to exercise in hot weather conditions. The area made available includes three different municipalities, which were severely affected by the 1968’s earthquake of Belice. This creates a very realistic exercise environment.

Participating modules

The exercise was organised in close cooperation with the Italian Civil Protection Department.​​​​​​

The exercise provided the opportunity for a country to participate that is not part of the Mechanism.​​ The following teams participated in the exercise:


 -  TAST from the Netherlands

 -  USAR team from the Netherlands

 -  USAR team from Belgium

 -  USAR team from Algeria
