ELIAMEP participates as a partner in the project “first RESponder-Centered support toolkit for operating in adverse and infrastrUcture-less EnviRonments (RESCUER)”. It aims to design and develop a First-Responder-centered technology toolkit that will empower the next-generation of First Responders (Fire-fighters, Search-and-rescue, Medics, Police) by enhancing their operational capacity and safety, specifically in adverse conditions, both environmental and infrastructure-wise.

The ultimate goal of RESCUER is to introduce the next generation of FRs, who will be better protected, connected and situationally aware, with enhanced operational capacity and able to efficiently operate in infrastructure-less environments without power and communications network.

In RESCUER, ELIAMEP will explore the legal and regulatory issues behind physical environment in the first responders’ domain, providing therefore an analysis of the current European framework applicable to both research and end-use of the project. ELIAMEP will conduct academic research on the subject matter at stake.
