The intention is to start with the part corresponding to fires and in critical areas.

The agreement was initialed by the president of the provincial institution, Carlos García, and the rector of the University of Salamanca, Ricardo Rivero. he details of the job were presented by Professor Diego González Aguilera, who also leads the TIDOP group, and who stressed that for the first time there will be a plan that serves to prevent issues of “enormous impact on society such as fires and floods” , demonstrating also how engineering works to solve people’s problems, something that must “hook students”.
