Content orientation and results:
The ENSURE research project aimed at improving crisis management in urban areas and developing situational volunteer concepts and warning systems.
Within the project, the research at the German Red Cross (GRC) was able to develop a pilot concept for the training and further education of executives for the integration of unaffiliated volunteers and to develop a pilot concept for the instruction of unaffiliated volunteers in GRC structures. In addition to the findings from application analyses, the two central exercises within the research project were used and scientifically evaluated.
