A4Campsite

A4Campsite is a flood-oriented Early Warning System specifically targeted at raising self-protection in campsites located in flood zones in Catalonia. It is currently implemented and being tested in 14 campsite located in the delta of the Tordera River Basin, an area where floods represent a significant natual hazard.

A4Campsite shows real-time meteorological information, local data from river gauges and forecasts of rainfall and flash flood hazards that can affect campsites located in flood-prone areas. In case of warnings it shows specific self-protection actions to be done, allowing the campsite operators to better manage such events.

“We have to garantee people’s safety. When people come to our facilities on holidays, come to spent some days or just a nice weekend, we can’t fail them. An Early Warning System for floods provides campsites located in prone areas more security. Moreover, in case of heavy rain or storm surges we could protocolize what we should do every single moment.”
