In the District of Klodzko, trainings and lectures about disaster prevention for civil protection and crisis managenement services are performed by the Crisis Management Team. Since 2004 annual trainings and lectures are organized for civil protection services to improve cooperation betweenvarious administrative levels and more regular trainings are held for local authorities on various topics. The range and scenarios of the trainings are elaborated by the Crisis Management Team. For example, trainings have been performed on flood and other meteorological hazards, road disaster, forest fires in mountain areas and terrorist threats. In case of the second type of the meetings, they can be characterised as local 'business meetings' between local authorities (from district and communities). During the meetings for local authorities, presentations are shown for demanded themes, activities are also performed connected with reports, databases and other logistic problems.

Moreover, as a result of frequent meetings between the members of particular services of civil protection there is a great possibility for improving integration between services established on various administrative levels, as well as for increasing cooperation between vicinal administrative units. The various types of trainings and a great number of lectures have contributed significantly to solving common problems in the district and the community levels.
