Tomorrow volunteers and citizens in the squares I don’t risks 2017
Published on 13/10/2017 in News
Everything is now ready for the 7th edition of the campaign I don’t take risks. More than 5,000 volunteers of civil protection will be in the squares on October 14 in 103 provincial capitals to meet citizens and inform them about the risks of their territory.
As we have already announced, there are many novelties that characterize this year’s appointment. The event is all about provincial capitals. Each capital hosts one or more events (in one square or in neighbouring places) made by civil protection volunteer organizations in the provincial territory (local sections of national organizations or municipal groups or local associations of civil protection volunteers). The events are linked to the knowledge of the places and the risks actually present on the territory, through urban walks on risk trails, treasure hunts, sporting events.
Support for local events has also come from important testimonials in the world of sports, culture and entertainment. From Piero Angela who invited the L’Aquila citizens to come to the squares to Andrea Bocelli who addressed a message on the importance of prevention, to pass to characters of the show like Giorgio Panariello who supports the square of Massa Carrara, or Marco Berry who instead addresses the citizens of Turin.
The Chief Department Angelo Borrelli has officially launched the initiative this morning: he has held a press conference alongside the main partners of the campaign: for Anpas – National Public Assistance Association Assistant for Civil Protection Volunteer Carmine Lizza, for Ingv – National Institute of Geophysics and Vulcanology, President Carlo Doglioni, Professor Angelo Masi of Reluis – Network of University of Engineering for Seismic Engineering and Ispra – Institute for environmental protection and research, the Director of the Department for Geological Service Claudio Campobasso.
This morning, a tweetstorm was organized to support the national campaign on good civil protection practices. Thanks to the great participation of volunteers and institutional representatives participating in the campaign, #iononrischio2017 came to second place in Twitter’s trending topics.
