The Department of Civil Protection has been guaranteeing the delivery of humanitarian aid since the beginning of the emergency, following the requests received by the European Civil Protection Mechanism from Ukraine. The Department coordinates both the assessment of resources available to Regions, Autonomous Provinces, Local Authorities and Operational Structures and the delivery operations.

A camp provided by the Civil Protection of Friuli Venezia Giulia capable to host 250 people has been delivered today, March 18, from Palmanova. The arrival in Michalovce, in Slovakia, is expected in the evening of March 19. The convoy will be accompanied by volunteers, technical staff, regional officials and officials of the National Department of Civil Protection, who will work on the setting up of 30 tents equipped with lighting, heating, beds, services and a field kitchen.

In addition, in order to cope with the medical support required by Ukraine to the EU Civil Protection Mechanism, the Department has ordered the dispatch of 15 additional ambulances, in addition to the 8 donated in the previous days. The convoy, which left the logistics hub of Palmanova on Thursday 17 March, will arrive in Romania on Sunday. The vehicles will be subsequently consigned to the Ukrainian authorities.
