The system allows 48 hours before the disaster to alert the appropriate authorities and instances to take the necessary precautions.




       

     At the same time, a Fire Observation and Early Warning System was set up in Dimitrovgrad. The system consists of a thermal camera located in an automatic control tower and a control center.
