The Information, Training and Research Centre is the link that unites local authorities, research organisations, trade associations, institutions, and the staff involved in civil protection and emergency management. The Academy’s main aim is to provide useful instruments to contain or, indeed, prevent both natural and man-made catastrophic events, such as seismic and hydrogeological risk, chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear risk, risk of terrorist attacks, meteorological risk, volcanic risk, and fire risk.
