Our video team was in charge of a corporate video production for the MIRA, program run by the SINAE in LATAM market, as a video animation company it was created a 3D animation of a flood early alert system. The videos are focused on easy to understand explanations of how the system works and it required voice in off with different accents, 3D modelling, animation and FX.
The Dirección Nacional del Sistema Nacional de Emergencias (Sinae) is working on a new information system. This is MIRA: Integral Risk and Affectation Monitor (Monitor Integral de Riesgos y Afectaciones).
The MIRA has different functionalities, one of them is, through an agreement with ANTEL, send alerts via SMS in case of emergencies.
This tool is developed on a georeferenced platform, so that the alert only reaches the population that is in the area affected by the event that you want to alert. For example, if there is a fire in Punta del Diablo, cell phones that are in the department of Rocha will receive an SMS notifying them of the fire, including for example evacuation routes that are clogged and care measures.
Cases like this one, show us how important is to new technologies work together with government, and how using tools like in this case, make it easy to reach everybody. It was great to have the chance of working for such an incredible tool that can help to prevent disasters and help people to be ready to act.
