NATO Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre providing to support Slovenia following deadly flooding


Following Slovenia’s request for assistance via NATO’s Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre (EADRCC), Spain offered one heavy CH-47 helicopter with up to 25 personnel, including crew and supporting staff.

Allies are also providing support through the EU and bilaterally. Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany and France have offered support including helicopters, excavators, prefabricated bridges and engineering teams. The United States has also deployed staff to Ljubljana to assess the situation and determine urgent humanitarian needs.

The EADRCC is the Alliance’s principal civil emergency response mechanism in the Euro-Atlantic area. The Centre functions as a clearing-house system for coordinating both requests for and offers of assistance mainly in case of natural and man-made disasters.
