Risk prevention in the cross-border area
The main goal of the project SAFE TOGETHER is to improve the capability to react to disasters through an increase in the level of preparedness and operability of the rescue services in the cross- border area of central Croatia, northern Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro. Project results are: educated staff (at least 10 people from each country), new GSS stations/services founded, and public- raised awareness of preserving the environment and nature. Also, within the project, development of infrastructure is planned, resulting in renovated training centers for risk prevention in the cross-border area (Daruvar, Gradiška and Podgorica). The total budget of the project investments is around 514.738,00 EUR.
