Film ‘Living with Floods’
Within the framework of the FRISCO1 project, work package 8 (Raising awareness about flood risks), the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning of the Republic of Slovenia prepared a short film ‘Living with Floods’. The film was made in cooperation with the Environmental Agency of the Republic of Slovenia (ARSO) and the Administration of the Republic of Slovenia for Civil Protection and Disaster Relief (URSZR). The film describes the floods in Slovenia, displays the forecasting and issuing of hydrological warnings of the ARSO, and shows the functioning of the URSZR or its coordination of field assistance through the Notification Centre of the Republic of Slovenia and action in the event of interventions. A number of guidelines for self-protection against floods, upon flood forecasts, during and after floods are also given.
