The 18th EADRCC consequence management field exercise, called ''SRBIJA 2018”will be jointly organized by the Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre (EADRCC) and the Ministry of the Interior of Serbia. The consequence management field exercise will be conducted from 8th to 11th October 2018 in and around Mladenovac, Serbia. The aim of the exercise is to improve interoperability in international disaster response operations.

The choice of an earthquake scenario is linked to the type of geological and environmental challenges faced by Serbia.

These include urban search and rescue, medical/paramedical teams, Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear (CBRN) protection, as well as decontamination teams and water rescue teams.
