Background In recent years, the nature and magnitude of disasters have increased drastically, including terrorism attacks, earthquakes, floods and pandemic. The immediate and far reaching impacts of these disasters highlight the need for rapid and effective response and crisis management. Therefore, the role of the institutions dealing with crisis management is paramount in assessing the risks and taking steps to mitigate them, and effectively respond should the crisis situation occur. Training of the state police officials is a very important step to ensure conditions for adequate response in case of disasters and other emergencies.
