The University of Vaasa participated in the authority exercise

The University of Vaasa participated in the exercises on Wednesday 9 March. The exercise was a part of The Vaasa 22 exercise led by the Pori Brigade. The exercise is one of the six local defence exercises of the army.

In the authority exercise, the university got to test its own contingency plan.

The exercise brought together not only the staff, conscripts and reservists of the Pori Brigade, but also the authorities in the Ostrobothnia region, staff of the city of Vaasa, and companies and operators in the region. The authorities included, among others, the police, the rescue department, and the border guard.

The planning of this exercise was started already last autumn when there was no knowledge of the current international situation, and the contingency plan of the university is updated annually.
