EUFOR HQ has held a 2-day meeting for engineering experts from AFBiH and EUFOR, with the primary aim of devising next year’s training activities.
Attendees at the meeting, the ninth of its kind, also discussed lessons identified from activities already carried out this year, including the flood-related disaster relief. They then developed and approved the engineering training calendar for 2015.
EUFOR has provided two major training courses at Camp Butmir, Sarajevo, this week, instructing Armed Forces BiH (AF BiH) personnel and members of the Mostar and Zenica Mountain Rescue Teams.
The AF BiH personnel underwent a 7 day training course to rescue injured personnel from minefields. The course began with theoretical training in the classroom, before the students conducted practical exercises, firstly using a crane to simulate airborne access to the minefield, and then using an AF BiH Mi-8 helicopter.
The Land Operation Commander of the Chilean Army, Lieutenant General Juan Carlos Nuñez Bustamente, visited EUFOR headquarters today at Camp Butmir, Sarajevo.
General Bustamente was welcomed by a guard of honour before having an office call with Major General Dieter Heidecker, Commander EUFOR. In the afternoon, he was the guest of honour at a medal parade, where he was able to witness EUFOR’s Chilean Contingent receiving their Operation Althea medals.
EUFOR’s Multinational Battalion has transported over 20 tons of construction material to locations in BiH which were affected by the flooding in May and June.
The construction materials, which were provided via the Red Cross organisation, are to be used to help reconstruct houses which were affected by flooding in Orašje, Gradačac and Ključ.
EUFOR’s medical team, from the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, recently conducted medical training for a number of personnel from the EU Delegation and EU Special Representative’s Offices.
Major General Sandor Fucsku, Commander of the Hungarian Defence Force Joint Force Command, today visited EUFOR HQ at Camp Butmir.
Maj Gen Fucsku was presented with a guard of honour before being welcomed by Commander EUFOR, Maj Gen Heidecker, and EUFOR's Chief of Staff, Brigadier General András Szűcs.
A EUFOR Mobile Training Team has been training personnel from Armed Forces BiH during a Forklift Handler Course, which took place in Rajlovac from 15 to 26 September.
The training, delivered by a Swiss Mobile Training Team, covered how to drive and handle the forklifts safely. The course itself lasted one week but took place in 2 phases: the first part was to ‘train the trainers’, and the second part confirmed the abilities of these new instructors to teach students in future.
