The non-governmental organization Green Home presented the results of the project "I am ready", which lasted for nine months and aimed at raising awareness among primary and secondary school students about the risks of natural and other disasters through educational campaigns (fires, floods, earthquakes, heatstroke, snow, and snowstorms, etc.).

According to Green Home spokeswoman Sanja Orlandic, the goal was to contribute to prevention, more adequate and faster response in the event of a natural disaster, protection of ecosystems and improvement of the environment.

The project was supported by the Ministry of the Interior, from the funds of the Protection and Rescue Fund, and it lasted from January 1st to September 30th.

Pupils from Herceg Novi Elementary School “Blazo Jokov Orlandic” proved to be the best in the campaign and were rewarded with twenty tents and sleeping bags, while students from other schools received first aid kits and fire extinguishers.
