Tsinghua Holdings member company supports response to super typhoon



Emergency management platform of Beijing Global Safety Technology gives assistance to emergency departments of all regions to cope with super typhoon Lekima. 

Beijing Global Safety Technology, a member enterprise of Tsinghua Holdings, produced an elaborate disaster distribution thematic map which supported the dispatching of emergency assistance in response to super typhoon Lekima.

Beijing Global Safety Technology, together with the Tsinghua University Public Safety Institute and Beijing Global Alert Technology, worked together to use model and geographic data to create a thematic map covering important places and facilities at risk of disaster. It also graded those risks to assist in study and deduction of the typhoon’s impact and support relevant departments in their emergency-response decision-making.

At the same time, the emergency management platform created by Beijing Global Safety Technology played an important role in rescue capacity of the affected regions.

In Hangzhou, capital of China’s Zhejiang province, municipal cadres used an emergency linkage management center created by the company to connect with different regions and to monitor local conditions.

They also organized member units to check the typhoon’s track and review satellite cloud pictures, video surveillance and radar maps through the platform so as to deploy response work effectively. The emergency linkage management platform displayed data of relevant departments to help summarize data.

In Suzhou of China’s Jiangsu province, a comprehensive application system of emergency management created by Beijing Global Safety Technology was used by the municipal government to report disaster conditions and monitor the real-time water level information of river arteries, sluices and reservoirs. It helped transmit the required emergency response and enabled on-site situation monitoring.

The super typhoon Lekima arrived in East China’s Zhejiang province on Aug 10, 2019 and was the strongest typhoon so far this year in China. Lekima landed in southern coastal regions of China and then moved north, causing many secondary geological disasters including mountain torrents and water logging as well as casualties and property damage.
