The exercise called “Karst Exercise 2011” was held on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th May, 2011 at the Slovenian-Italian border. The Karst area was been chosen for this event because it is especially affected by forest fires.

The objective of the exercise was to test a joint protocol on cross-border cooperation between Italy and Slovenia, procedures and communications between Volunteers, Forest Service, Fire Brigade and the Regional Control Room and between the components of the Italian and Slovenian forest fire system with check radio communications in the presence of multiple simultaneous interventions, and also with the monitoring system of forest fires by Wescam installed on one of the Regional Air Service helicopters.

The exercise took place on two distinct scenarios, and only partly contemporary. The sites of action were the area near Fernetti Trebiciano (TS) and the location "Hrastiči" near the town of Santa Croce of Trieste. Two scenarios zones were close to areas frequented by fires of various origins: events arising from the passage of trains on the nearby railway line, lightning striking the top of the nearby hilly area and intentional and negligent actions have already occurred in several places.

This event was been organized by Autonomous Region Friuli Venezia Giulia - Regional Civil Protection and Slovenian Forestry Institute.
