The exer­cise is planned as a Dis­as­ter Relief Oper­a­tion based on dif­fer­ent sce­nar­ios dur­ing which KSF has to act in sup­port of the pop­u­la­tion of the respec­tive munic­i­pal­i­ties.

All units of KSF are sup­posed to con­duct, train and improve their capa­bil­i­ties relat­ed to their core mis­sions such as FIRE FIGHTING, DEMINING or HANDLING of HAZARDOUS MATERIAL and SEARCH AND RESCUE. Here­by each core capa­bil­i­ty will be test­ed on the basis of a spe­cif­ic dis­as­ter sce­nario.

The lay­out of the exer­cise fore­sees that KSF sup­ports munic­i­pal­i­ties and local author­i­ties in dis­as­ter relief sit­u­a­tions, when they are not able to cope with the dis­as­ter with own means only any­more.

The exer­cise is a fol­low-up of the exer­cise “Agile Lion 4” con­duct­ed at the end of Sep­tem­ber 2011. “Eagle 1” has been planned by KSF and will be con­duct­ed by KSF with its Land Forces Com­mand as the con­trol­ling staff for its sub­or­di­nat­ed and exer­cis­ing units like the Rapid Reac­tion Brigade and the Oper­a­tions Sup­port Brigade.

The plan­ning process for the exer­cise start­ed in Novem­ber 2011. At the same time the date for the exe­cu­tion of the exer­cise had been decid­ed. KFOR assist­ed dur­ing the whole plan­ning process and will also sup­port the observ­er and con­troller orga­ni­za­tion in mon­i­tor­ing and eval­u­at­ing the exer­cise. KFOR is going to sup­port the prepa­ra­tion of the final eval­u­a­tion report too. Con­se­quent­ly, NATO and KFOR mil­i­tary offi­cers will be active­ly engaged dur­ing the whole exer­cise.

Koso­vo Secu­ri­ty Force informs the pop­u­la­tion that dur­ing the exer­cise from 20h to 30th of April, there will be move­ments of Koso­vo Secu­ri­ty Forces’ con­voys along local and high­way roads, and also dis­lo­ca­tions in the vicini­ties of the above men­tioned munic­i­pal­i­ties. On the occa­sion of hold­ing this exer­cise, KSF reas­sures the cit­i­zens that in no man­ner it will raise con­cerns for their prop­er­ty and free­doms.
