Head of the crisis management headquarters, pointing to the necessity of using the technology of knowledge-based companies and creative and innovative teams in the country's earthquake accelerometer network, said: Currently, there are 140 seismograph stations across the country, and half of these stations are closed due to technical problems, lack of necessary technology and equipment are out of the cycle of efficiency. The domestic technological capability can help to revive and upgrade these stations, and while saving currency, creating employment and added value, with the development of technologies, it will provide the possibility of preventing and managing this crisis.
Nami continued by emphasizing that technological capacities should be used in various areas of crisis, from environmental problems such as fine dust to ensuring the security of dangerous places such as warehouses of chemical or flammable substances.
