finnish border-safety authorities
The third Work Package of the CB-SAFE project aims at improving the cooperation between the different Finnish border-safety authorities.
The aim is, that through a unified cooperation model, all authorities can use similar best practices as well as best meet the safety-needs of cross-border passengers.
The main partners of this project are The South Karelia Rescue Department (SKRD) and The Kymenlaakso Rescue Department (KYRD). SKRD has the lead responsibility for developing the cooperation model and has the key role in distributing the results as well as benchmarking activities connected to the developed model.
The main research method for the project are interviews of the following six Finnish rescue departments: Kymenlaakso, South-Karelia, North-Karelia, Kainuu, Oulu-Koillismaa and Lapland.
In the interviews those persons of Rescue Departments are included, who have the main responsibilities in cross-border cooperation. Interviews are based on the current status and developmental needs of cross border cooperation and operative models.
In addition to the aforementioned rescue departments, other Finnish key cooperative partners (Police, Border guard, Customs, Finnish emergency response center and Gulf of Finland coast guard) will be interviewed and heard.
After the interviews, there will be dissemination seminars for all concerned parties on the key findings and on guidance for how to proceed in the future.
Outcome of the project
Work Package can be summed up by the following:
Safety information for passengers based on interview results
Improved cross-border cooperation
