In the application of modern technologies and its use for the management, prevention and early warning of natural disasters, the Minister of Climate Crisis and Civil Protection, among other things, referred to the Minister of Climate Crisis and Civil Protection, in his welcome to the 3rd forum of the SPAY that began today. Vasilis Kikilias in addition to artificial intelligence, stressed that they would support the SPAY initiatives and then referred to the AGIS program and two important projects that include, the National Risk Management and Prevention System and the National Early Warning System. The Minister pointed out that by the end of March the entire AGIS programme, amounting to 2.1 billion euros, will have been put into competition, contests involving among others “canaders, medium-type helicopters, nearly 400 million euros in firefighting vehicles, amphibian aircraft, search and rescue helicopters, drones and whatever hardware can help.” At the same time as Mr. Kikilias said, it also includes: – Early warning systems – Development of natural disaster forecast models – Monitoring social media using specific algorithms for this issue – Improvement of distribution of rescue operational forces – Assessment and mitigation of risk based on geographical characteristics and climate standards – Real-time analysis with artificial intelligence -Discharge planning and route optimization for safe evacuations – Simulation and modeling scripts -Drones and robotic applications which are attached to artificial intelligence of the Warroom of Civil Protection -Communication and decision support through analysis of incoming emergency messages and calls -Reconstruction and reconstruction after disasters -Unification and data merger -Mechanic learning to assess damage -Mechanical learning to assess behavior and manage crowds “A small look at those coming you will see from the next anti-pyric period and for the next 8 years we will receive. All these people that we will be interested in our neighborhood and firefighters, RS officers should do our best to protect our country, those who are only fighting and opposing difficulties and I consider that all of us jointly self-governing, colleagues in parliament, ministers, volunteers, other people who are interested in our neighbourhood and firefighters, officers should do our best to protect our country, support our fellow people, to help them. The times of need will unfortunately come again. The planet is experiencing parallel crises that we could not even imagine and we must be ready and prepared as far as possible. And there must be a minimum of consensus and cooperation so that there can be a natural continuity of all those built so that they do not go missing from one government to another. Instead of being a dowry upon which the next governments and generations will tread,” noted Mr. Kikilias. In addition, Mr. Kikilias, addressing the volunteers, said that “he bows to their efforts and to what they have done all these years” as he stressed they risk their lives many times. Finally, the Minister made a special reference to the women and men of the Fire Corps, who, as he said, have chosen a profession that “is not sure whether they will come home in the evening to protect us, our property and the natural beauty.”
