“When helping unifies” in Silver Sabre 2018-2
Pristina - The final coordination conference for the Exercise Silver Sabre 2018-2, took place today,
September 12, at KFOR Headquarters. This exercise, as one of the most important
training activities conducted and led by KFOR, will be held throughout 15th to 18th of
October in Camp Film City.
"When helping unifies" is the motto chosen for the Silver Sabre 2018 – 2, as it brings
together more than 2000 participants from 17 Kosovo institutions, multiple international
organizations, KFOR, NATO Advisory Liaison Team (NALT), EULEX, and UN. This
exercise aims to facilitate training for emergency situations involving inter-institutional
coordination, familiarization with large-scale incident management procedures, and
situational management before and after the declaration of emergency, in order to
contribute to local capacity building and improve the level of coordination between all the
stakeholders in Kosovo.
Silver Sabre 2018-2 will provide all participating agencies the opportunity to revise
response documentation used during emergency situations, improve mutual
understanding of roles and responsibilities on decision preparation, decision making and
coordination of efforts and identify areas of concern and actions needed to improve
capabilities in order to save lives during a national emergency.
