Resilience in communications. Do you already have smoke detectors installed?

Smoke detectors are now mandatory. Smoke detectors save lives, because smoke is the number one cause of death in house fires. They alert you in time, so that you can safely escape from a burning house and alert the emergency services. That is why smoke detectors will be mandatory everywhere in the Netherlands as of today 1 July.

Resiliently dealing with emergencies. Smoke detectors save lives. It can save your life and those of your loved ones!

In recent years, The Hague has been rocked by several house fires. Unfortunately even a few times with a fatal outcome, which is terrible. We would prefer never to experience this again. It is vital that every resident is aware of the fire hazard. And that the houses in the city are as fireproof as possible. But if things do go wrong and a fire breaks out, it is just as important that you can safely escape from the burning house. That prevents victims. That is why smoke detectors are mandatory everywhere in the Netherlands from 1 July 2022. Even though this device is small, it is indispensable… it saves lives!

Week of resilience at the special education primary school De Bonte Vlinder Segbroek. Strong, resilient and resilient as a person and city! How do you achieve that?

Cities grow. By 2050, 70% of the world's population will live in cities (source: UN). But cities around the world increasingly face complex and difficult-to-solve challenges. Think of: climate change, digital transformation, loneliness, rising energy costs and inequality. These challenges are not only complex, but also reinforce each other. This complicates the solution. But all these problems, how do they relate to each other? And how do we ensure that we can still enjoy living in the city in the future? To achieve this, we need to create a city that is resilient and resilient. With residents who are strong, resilient and resilient. A city that can take a beating, but can also adapt when necessary. The municipality's Resilience team started a trial in January together with the residents, school and care home of Noorderbeekdwarsstraat. How do you make a street more resilient? What works, and what doesn't?

Do you want to contribute to the digital resilience of your neighbourhood? Become a digital ambassador!

The Municipality of The Hague and the Police Unit The Hague are looking for the help of digital ambassadors. These ambassadors are residents who help to make information on (the prevention of) cybercrime and digitalized crime more accessible to their local network and neighbourhood. Digital safety has become increasingly important, especially with more and more people working from home during this pandemic. It means they spend more time online, being behind their computer, phone or tablet. This increases the risk of becoming a victim of digitalized crime, such as online fraud or fake web shops.
