On Friday, April 12, the US Embassy will hold a crisis management exercise.

Following months of meticulous planning in conjunction with Croatian authorities, the U.S. Embassy Zagreb has announced that it will hold a crisis management training exercise on Friday, April 12, 2024, from 8:00 to 12:00. The actual drill will be held in a number of places in and around Zagreb, including the US Embassy. Additionally, the public should be informed that on Friday, April 12, aircraft may fly above the City of Zagreb’s boundary between 8:00 am and 12:00 pm.

The Joint Combined Exchange Training (JCET) program between the Croatian Police and U.S. Special Operations Command – Europe has been running for a long time, and this practice marks its culmination. This last exercise shows how committed the US is to enhancing first response and counterterrorism skills with  Croatia, a key NATO Ally. 

Every year, crisis management drills are mandated at US embassies and consulates across the globe to get staff members ready for man-made or natural disasters. An exceptional chance to carry out this collaborative, large-scale, live-action crisis management exercise is presented by the United States and the Government of Croatia’s strong bilateral relations and cooperation.

The American Embassy in Croatia is aware that the training exercise may disrupt regular business activities both within the Embassy and in the neighborhood, and they value the support of individuals who will be impacted.
