   While disasters are by definition tragic, resulting in great loss of material goods and property, as well as injury and loss of life, disaster relief is a truly human response meaning that when people see those in need, human consciousness has developed the desire and ability to help others, crossing geographical distance and cultural boundaries.
   According to Annual Plan 2019 a Mobile Training Team (MTT) from Crisis Management and Disaster Response Centre of Excellence (CMDR COE) located in Sofia, Na 2 conducted a three-day Disaster Relief Operations (DRO) Course between 10 and 12 September 2019, in Camp “SCHINA”, Tyrnavos, Na 3, for SEEBRIG HQ Nucleus Staff.
  The aim of the course was the acquisition of basic knowledge related to disasters as phenomenon, as well as the main players and mechanisms in disaster relief in order to facilitate the use of SEEBRIG tool, namely the Engineer Task Force – ETF, in such operations.   
  Disaster Relief Operation Course was considered a great success both by instructors and participants, while it improved their knowledge related to the topics presented by the Mobile Training Team.
