The project envisages the procurement of safety equipment, emergency vehicles at land and at sea, mobile command and control units, communication systems and the establishment of the Center for Advanced Training for Firefighting and Civil Protection in Split-Dalmatia County with a branch office in Dubrovnik-Neretva County. These two centers in Croatia will establish permanent cross-border cooperation with the Belvedere di Fabriano Training Park in the Marche region of Italy, which will also improve its infrastructure from this project.
