The Minister of Climate Crisis and Civil Protection, Christos Stylianidis, went to Alepochori today, together with the Deputy Minister, Evangelos Tournas, as well as the Chief of the Fire Brigade, Lieutenant General Stefanos Kolokouris, where they attended the meeting with Fire Service, on "Information, instructions and consultation on flood phenomena and the safety of citizens", in the presence of the Deputy Regional Governor of West Attica, Eleftherios Kosmopoulos and Mayor Grigoris Stamoulis.

It is recalled that the political leadership of the Ministry of Climate Crisis and Civil Protection had visited Alepochori on September 25, as part of an autopsy on anti-corrosion projects that had been launched in the area after the summer fires in West Attica. On the occasion of the visit, it was decided to conduct an information campaign for the residents by the Local Government, in cooperation with the local Fire Service, under the guidance of the Ministry.

Mr. Stylianidis warmly thanked the officers of the Megaron Fire Service for the excellent presentation, but also their daily contribution to the safety of residents and noted: "This is an excellent initiative that proves the value of preventive action, but also the importance of synergies. between citizen and state to deal with the effects of the climate crisis. We urge the Local Government throughout the country to proceed with corresponding information initiatives. The Fire Brigade is at the disposal of the Municipalities and the Regions to assist with its know-how. Proper information, prevention, enhanced readiness, are keys to citizen safety. Congratulations to the Commander of the Megaron Fire Service, Lieutenant Commander Dimitris Kaiafas and Firefighter Rafael Amoridis, for their excellent presentation and substantial contribution to this great bet, the protection of human life. That is our first priority. "

In his statements to the media, he stressed: "This is my second visit here in Alepochori. I had come as soon as I took up my duties, because we had identified with the experts that it is a very vulnerable area, especially after the fires. We then did an autopsy and came up with specific measures. One of them was to inform the population of the area and to conduct a relevant exercise, which is scheduled for October 25.

We attended an excellent presentation by the Fire Brigade Officer. I'm impressed - and I've seen a lot of these shows all over Europe. It was a presentation that really shows the exceptional level of the Fire Brigade.

I think that despite the indignation, as expected, of the residents after the fires, it was a very good event. First of all, he created the clear and clear image that we all need to be very careful and follow the instructions of the Fire Brigade, so that in case of a flood, all together, with the cooperation of the Municipality, the Region, the Fire Brigade and EMAK, ensure that we do not have a loss of life.

Anti-corrosion works have started in the area and continue. Procedures need to be speeded up. We as the Ministry of Climate Crisis and Civil Protection will insist on the Region and the Municipality in this direction in order to accelerate their completion. But we know that there are many old sins. Flood protection works take time. Anti-corrosion agents, logs and logs are now manufactured. In the event of a flood, however, we should all act as one person, under the guidance of the Fire Brigade.

This is my message: Workshops, information actions are necessary. So that the citizen knows that his area is vulnerable and knows how to act before and after the occurrence of the phenomenon. It is therefore important, as stated in the excellent presentation we attended, that we all have in mind how we should act at this particular time of danger.

What happened today was in the context of prevention. Because informing the citizen is at the center of prevention for all natural disasters. The more information, the better the prevention, the more prepared we will be in the time of crisis. Thank you".
