Assistance to the population. The National Service of Civil Protection Continues to provide assistance to people affected by the earthquake in Emilia Romagna, Lombardy and Veneto. In particular, there is a decrease in the number of people housed in reception areas or indoor facilities, also considering the citizens that could go back to their own homes, after being deemed "usable" after inspections by the Fire Department or fit for use with A result, after AeDE checks.
Overall, there are less than 10,000 people hosted in Emilia-Romagna (9884), while 235 are housed in Lombardy and 17 in Veneto.
In view of the decreasing number of people present in the reception areas and facilities and to ensure better planning of activities, the Di.Coma.C yesterday sent to all Provincial Coordination Centers in the Emilia-Romagna the procedures for the dismantlement of the areas and day care facilities, as they gradually, they were no longer necessary. The steps envisaged regarding the authorization request to the disposal, removal, recovery and reconditioning of the goods-to replenish stocks of materials for possible future emergencies-and the safety of the area.
31 he reception areas still active in Emilia-Romagna where 7,288 people are hosted, while 401 are located in indoor facilities (schools, sports halls and barracks), 2,195 in the hotels that have signed the agreement with Federalberghi and Asshotel.
235 people are housed in the only reception area left in the province of Mantova, in Moglia, while in Veneto, 17 people are in hotels.
Rules of behaviour in case of thunderstorms. During the summer season there may be frequent storms, characterized by heavy rain, hail, wind and lightning. Thunderstorms are phenomena difficult to predict, but the weather bulletins circulated within the reception areas report the weather conditions favorable to their development. To prevent the risks associated with thunderstorms, the Department of Civil Protection and the Regional Civil Protection Agency of Emilia-Romagna has produced a leaflet for citizens housed in reception areas, which contains general information in case of storm and some rules of conduct to follow if you are outdoors or in tents. The leaflets were sent to all the Di.Coma.C Provincial Coordination Centers and are distributed in the reception areas.
