Ladies and gentlemen,
We thank you for taking part in launching our project. The implementation of such a project would not have been possible if it had not been for research and for such people as Dr. Solakov and Dr. Marmureanu and Dr. Bonjer who were presented this morning. Building an EWS [early warning system] is only possible if you have a very good infrastructure: it means having a good seismic network that can cover a very good distribution of the territory. And our institute has that, just like the institute in Sofia.

Thank you very much for your coming here, this means people want to know more about earthquakes. I think time is too short to show what this system means. This system has been constructed by NIEP [National Institute for Earh Physics in Magurele, Romania] after a long European Project called 'Safer'. In a meeting that took place in Naples 2 weeks ago, the European Community authorities said that at that moment in the world there were two early warning systems in the world: one in Japan and one in Romania. Really, this is - I could say – a great success for our institute, and this project was made by a lot of people.

I have experienced four earthquakes in my life. The first was when as a 14-year old my family lived in Berkeley California. Our dog used to crawl under my bed and scratch himself by rubbing his behind against the bottom of my bed. One weekend morning I was up early reading and felt the bed moving just as it did when our beagle scratched. "Stop it," I said. The bed kept moving. I looked under it. There was no dog. I turned on the radio and heard that there had been a small earthquake centered along the famous San Andreas fault whose closest point to Berkeley lies about 10 miles to the west. I was excited, but not frightened.

Hello Ladies! Hello Gentlemen!
We are honoured to support the initiators of this interesting and useful program, to both the authorities and first of all to the citizens. This is a General Inspectorate that is quite busy. The previous speeches mentioned the number of calls that our institutions receive. Since we are in the fourth quarter of this year, up to this moment the inspectorate has had 216 real missions in which we have saved over 7000 lives, we assisted over 70.000 people within the security systems that we have.
