Albania Alert -EWS

The Albanian National Center for Forecast and Monitoring of Natural Risks (NCFMNR) is responsible for forecasting natural hazards (floods, forest fires,…). Every day the Center publishes a bulletin, describing the natural hazards for the next days. The warning messages are disseminated via e-mail, Viber, web page and Facebook to Civil Protection agency and to other governmental and public entities. However, the dissemination channel of this information in time and place to users is lacking.

Developed by Klodian Zaimi (freelancer)

Albania Alert (EWS) is an APP for the dissemination of warnings in the Albanian territory. Inputs to the APP are collected from the NCFMNR. This APP, which can be installed smartphones with a GPS system, is able to provide risk warnings where the user is located. The APP retrieves the detailed descriptions provided by the National Center, and can also include more details for specific areas inside the prefectures and additional advices for inhabitants or travelers.

TRL4. Laboratory testing of prototype component or process
Technology validated in lab. Basic technological components are integrated to establish that they will work together. This is relatively “low fidelity” compared with the eventual system. Examples include integration of “ad hoc” hardware in the laboratory. From a technological point of view, there are no limitations for the application of this innovation. The connection between the different components has been proven with other similar applications that could work together.

See more information about this level and the TRL and SRL levels.

The main components of the system have been tested separately, and an initial integration exercise has been conducted.

How does it work?

Every day the Albanian National Center for Forecast and Monitoring of Natural Risks publishes a bulletin at 12:00, describing the natural hazards. The warning messages disseminated with the APP can help to prevent or reduce human and socio-economic impacts/damages due to disasters. Dissemination of the information in time and in the correct place is the core of the EWS in Albania. Creation of a mobile APP for the dissemination of these warnings would provide much more information. This APP installed in smartphones will divide the Albanian territory in 12 areas (prefecture levels). Based on the the location of the user (GPS), the APP informs about the status of the natural risks that are affecting this area/location.

Limitations/conditions under which this innovation does not work or is less effective

Inputs (data and risk warnings) collected and managed by the APP is provided by the National Center for Forecast and Monitoring of Natural Risks. The innovation has a dependency on an external provider.

Added value
This technology may improve the current warning and dissemination system of the National Center from a static version, to a more dynamic and useful version for users. It combines smartphone and GPS technologies.
