Abstract

Since the connection between security and environmental issues has became evident, accidents in military storages as a source of environmental threats require new trend in crisis management policy and approach. This chapter presents evidence of complex of interconnected military and environmental issues based on a large accident dataset from the explosion in the ammunition storage ­facility located in “Paraćinske Utrine” at the Karadjordje hill. The accident examined complex situation preferable for risk assessment of storaging hazard materials and crisis management tools and methods that provide the basis for the application of methods, as well as extension new ideas for policy-making purposes. That is very important within the context of transportation and environmental issues of regional project Coridor 10. Additionally, findings stress issues of unification and harmonisation national regulation with the European Union legislation.
