The municipality of Thessaloniki has now a system that warns citizens against high temperatures. The system has been set up as a result of participating in the European Project LIFE ASTI. Through this platform, local thermal hot spots can be located and detailed information about upcoming thermal phenomena can be provided as early as four days ahead.

Koupkas, the Vice Mayor for Technical Works Mr. Efraim Kyrizidis, the Vice Mayor for Environmental Issues Mr. Sokratis Dimitriadis, and the Professor of the Department of Physics of The Aristotle University of Thessaloniki Dr. Dimitris Melas.
