FASTER aims to establish a new approach for disaster response in order to improve Europe’s overall disas-ter resilience. This will be accomplished by the targeted employment and synergetic deployment of a set of appropriate and complementary technologies. Immediate response is the second phase of the disaster man-agement cycle and is a very important aspect for dealing effectively with disasters. Consequently, FASTER will improve the disaster response and monitoring capabilities by providing first responders with a suite of core and supplementary tools to augment their situational awareness and, as a result, guarantee their safety as well as enhance their operational capacity.
FASTER strategic objectives
The FASTER consortium has decomposed its main objective into a set of S.M.A.R.T (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely) Objectives.
