'Mini-EUSO is the first detector of the JEM-EUSO program deployed on the International Space Station (ISS). It is a wide field of view telescope currently operating from a nadir-facing UV-transparent window in the Russian Zvezda module on the ISS. It is based on an array of Multi-Anode Photomultipliers Tubes (MAPMTs) working in photon counting mode with a microsecond time resolution. Among the different scientific objectives it searches for light signals with time durations compatible to those expected from Extensive Air Showers generated by Extreme Energy Cosmic Rays (EECRs) interacting in the atmosphere. Although the energy threshold for cosmic ray showers is above $E larger 10^{21}~eV$, due the constraints given by the size of the UV-transparent window, the dedicated trigger logic has been capable of the detection of other interesting classes of events, like elves, and ground flashers. An overview of the general performance of the trigger systems is provided, with a particular focus on the identification of classes of events responsible for therntriggers'
