Bericht von Alexander Virgili
In June, the Corpo Italiano di San Lazzaro stipulated an official collaboration agreement with the City of Pozzuoli for civil protection activities and to spread information and knowledge on the issues of prevention, enhance and improve local activities in the area, collaborate in emergency planning and organization services, as well as contribute to the improvement of radio communications.
Pozzuoli is an ancient city, founded in 531 BC, which today has over 80,000 inhabitants, located in the Phlegraean Fields (Campi Flegrei) area, an area known worldwide for the phenomenon of bradyseism, as well as for the presence of the “solfatara”.
The Phlegraean Fields are an area studied by geologists, urban planners, engineers, sociologists, prevention and safety technicians as well as those involved in civil protection. The collaboration agreement, which commits to developing and promoting information, courses and training programs for the population and operators, constitutes a recognition and appreciation for the work that the Corps has been carrying out in the field of civil protection in recent years, a work appreciated for the seriousness and commitment of the volunteers, who often stand out for their professionalism.
The collaboration agreement will have a duration of three years and will also offer an opportunity to the Corpo Italiano di San Lazzaro to further specialize its volunteers and enhance its presence in a challenging area at the center of the attention of scholars in the sector.
The collaboration agreement was signed by Arch. De Simone, Director of the civil protection service of the City of Pozzuoli, representing the Mayor, and by the Italian Corps Commander Prof. Antonio Virgili.
