Hazard information via smartphone

Major fires, the spread of hazardous substances, power failures, storms or floods: To ensure that citizens can respond quickly to hazardous situations, the Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance (BKK) has developed NINA, the emergency information and notification app. It warns citizens within 30 seconds via a push alert, thus showing how digital solutions can not only make our lives easier, but also safer. In addition, NINA provides assistance to users through recommendations on how to behave in a given situation and general emergency tips on how to best prepare for risks. The app is currently already being used by more than four million people, and the figure should rise to five million by 2020. The BKK is working with T-Systems to implement NINA. The fail-safe and powerful infrastructure of T-Systems forms the basis for the mobile warning system.
