Since April of last year Sirmione is part of seismic zone 2 meaning there might be a risk of strong earthquakes. Sirmione’s municipal administration now has launched a comprehensive contingency plan, smartphone App included!
The new App regarding earthquake safety is supposed to work as a support for Sirmione’s contingency plan ensuring the necessary coordination in cases of natural desasters. The app is free for smartphones and tablets, can be downloaded in app stores and play stores, gives users access to real-time information in case of emergency and can easily be shared on whatsapp or other social media platforms. It will be updated next year with the new seismic microzonation data.
Sirmione’s contingency plan also includes tasks of tackling problems arising through other natural desasters caused by water, fire or e.f. the collision of boats. It also provides eleven waiting places, which are spread out throughout the peninsula and will soon be indicated by street signs. Also other places of reception will be marked – all of it for situations which hopefully never will occure.
