JUST IN TIME TRAINING IN THE CONTEXT OF MEDICAL, FLOOD AND CBRN RESPONSE OPERATIONS
Best practices & recommendations from past and recent disasters
In June 2020 five pan-European networks of practitioners and other actors in the security research domain joined forces to present a webinar on the topic of Just-In-Time Training (JITT) applied to the field of civil protection. The webinar provided the participants with the opportunity to gain insights into the current approaches and best practices as well potential future applications of the concept of JITT within response organisations. Based on first-hand experiences that the speakers have gathered through their involvement in past and recent disasters, in particular the COVID-19 pandemic, did the webinar provide a forum to share knowledge and experiences about how JITT can enable first responder to rapidly acquire specific skills or knowledge when the immediate need arises. Following the success of the webinar this paper aims at summari zing the challenges and practices identified to make the results available to a wider audience.
