Welcome to the website of Bastia Umbra (Perugia) civil protection Volunteers. Through this page we want to explain some important notions related to the civil protection activities. Thanks to the documentation we offer, the visitors will realize the work we carry out. We think the content of the website is quite easy to understand. However, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us through our contact form or by phone on Friday night from 9 pm to 11 pm.
"The Volounteer Municipal Group of Civil Protection of the City of Bastia Umbra was founded on 24th febrary 1998 through the decision of municipality council n°59.
Bastia Umbra municipal group of civil protection is included in the regional list of municipal groups(Decree of the Region Umbria n. 158) and also in the national list of volunteer organizations (protocol AGVOL/29079).
Our operational centre is provided with all the instruments we use to carry out the municipal activities we organize. Our volunteers work in three different fields:
- Emergency Telecommunication: the activities we perform in this area are based on the implementation of radio communication systems in order to provide a continuous communication between the volunteers or members, also in case of emergency. In fact, in such situations, the normal communication channels do not always work properly;
- Computer and data networks: the computer lab contains five personal computers, in three separate rooms, with different characteristics, according to their functions. All the computers are linked through a network of data which allows a perfect flexibility (independently of the user's position) and a very good management of documents and material produced. The system is completed by an Internet access shared to guarantee an efficient management of information. The system has also laptops to assure a quick shift between the location of civil protection volunteers and the municipal operational centre situated next to the location of the municipal police. The lab also contains inkjet printers, scanners, a fax and a photocopying machine;
- Tools and car fleet: the activities we carry out on this area are connected to the planning of new tools and vehicles and above all on the maintenance of the existing ones. The effectiveness of these instruments is very important for the activities of civil protection.
The municipal civil protection system will be implemented very soon with a new kit for the analysis of the weather conditions.
The instruments we can reckon on, help our volunteers to foresee, prevent and face with the risks in our area and the surrounding ones. If you want to have more detailed information about a specific area, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Through the contact section ("contatti" in the Italian language), on the top menu, you can take a look at our location in the map or you can contact us for additional information. We have also a section dedicated to our projects and publications, but all the materials are in Italian; so, if you need more details, contact us. Our biggest project is "Civilino", a cartoon for children; it shows the right behaviours in case of emergency. The cartoon was realized by the volounteers of Bastia Umbra in cooperation with Umbria Region and volounteers of Pietralunga; at the moment, there are three episodes of Civilino named "Civilino and the earthquake", "Civilino and the flood" and "Civilino and the forest fire" (for more info visit www.civilino.it)
All our materials are in italian language but we are at your disposal for any clarifications.
