The ERGO team visited Copenhagen, Denmark to present the project’s preliminary findings at the Danish Emergency Management Agency (DEMA). The meeting was attended by representatives from DEMA and the Danish emergency services.

On a previous data collection visit the team had gathered information about the Seest firework factory disaster. This event, which occurred in 2004, killed one and injured twenty-four. The event took place in a suburb of the city of Kolding. Over 2,000 people were evacuated following a fire and major explosion at a firework factory.

The ERGO project is organised with the support of the Prevention, Preparedness and Consequence Management of Terrorism and other Security-related Risks Programme - European Commission - Directorate-General Justice, Freedom and Security.
