Professional coordination of civil protection
In crisis situations, how can intermediary agencies provide an interface between the emergency and rescue services, on the one hand, and the civil population, on the other? KOKOS, a research project currently under way at the Institute of Human Factors and Technology Management IAT of the University of Stuttgart, is investigating this question. Results of this research are now available in the form of guidelines covering conceptual, legal and organizational issues.
