UMS reduces the risk of a catastrophe in the event of a natural disaster on the west coast of Norway. The Location Based Alerting System deployed by UMS in collaboration with Åknes/Tafjord Preparedness has resulted in more than adequate preparation for one of the major impending natural disasters in Europe.

We are not able to prevent rock slides, but we’re ensuring the safety of people by using real time tools to monitor the movement in the mountain. We have also established routines for evacuation of each village, and there are systems in place for warning the population well in time in case of emergency.
