Benidorm will be present at the V Smart Cities Congress, organized by the State Secretariat for Digital Advancement and the Tecmared Group, with the Urban Resilience project promoted by the City Council and the Dinapsis Operation & Lab center. This congress is the forum of professional reference in the field of Smart Cities nationwide and is held on June 26 in the La Nave space in Madrid.

The mayor, Toni Pérez, explained that "the organization of the event wanted the project 'Urban Resilience Diagnosis in the municipality of Benidorm' center one of the oral presentations that are scheduled during the V Congress Smart Cities. "This - he added - allows us to expose the work that in the last year and a half has been done to identify what would be the vulnerabilities and possible consequences that a crisis or emergency situation would have on the functioning of the city, to subsequently advance in the design of the measures that allow to anticipate those incidents, avoid that they occur or at least reduce their impact so that they do not affect the basic services ".

The technician of General Administration of the Areas of Citizen Security, Emergencies and Mobility of the City of Benidorm will be in charge of offering this presentation during the congress, with which Red.es also collaborates, and other entities and organizations such as the Network of Tourist Destinations Intelligent (Network DTI), the Spanish Network of Smart Cities (RECI), the Network of Urban Initiatives (RIU) or the Innpulso Network of Science and Innovation Cities. It should be noted that Benidorm is a member of these organizations.

The objective of the Urban Resilience project is to prevent and resolve more quickly and effectively any incident that affects the normal functioning of the city. This project is supervised by Dinapsis and has involved the City Council and all municipal concessionaires. From the diagnosis drawn up in this project, the City Council has improved and updated the Territorial Emergency Plan, approved at the end of March in the Civil Protection Commission of the Valencian Community. Furthermore, at a more advanced stage, Dinapsis will be converted into a real-time management center, in which all the actors involved in a crisis, whatever their size, are connected.

Governance has made it possible to identify the possible impacts that an emergency situation could have on traffic, electricity, security, beaches, etc. From that phase of Diagnosis, action plans will be outlined that will mark all the agents involved how each of them must act in those situations; and improvement proposals will also be drawn up to prevent these impacts.
