Challenge the practice is addressing: This practice addresses the usage of SKUs quarry for the emergency services of the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief and the fire brigade.
Concrete practice to achieve the expected goal: For the past three years, the quarry has served as a training ground for the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) and the fire department. A number of crisis scenarios may be excellently recreated and rehearsed for an emergency due to the wide area and the most diverse framework circumstances (dredging lake, difficult terrain in the extraction apron, high building components and technical facilities). As a result, the Leipzig regional office was able to complete a challenging large-scale exercise with its seven local divisions in a single day. The task forces of the different local units might be called together as needed for the individual exercise regions, training their cooperation and use of technology.
Expected impact/goal of the practice: The goal of this practice is to provide alternative usage to former quarry site which the entire community benefits from.
Who is the target user group of the practice/intervention or implementing the practice/intervention? This practice is for companies in the extractive industry.
