Earthquake Early Warning System project launched at the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on Tuesday as part of the second stage to complete the set up of the system in Mongolia.
The NEMA has recently established the Emergency Communications Center with 20 officials, which will be financed by the government.
The first stage of the project launched in 2011 when the government issued Decree No.195 to introduce the system to improve preparedness of the city in case of natural disasters, following mass casualties and destruction of properties caused by an earthquake in Japan.
A total of 48 three-meter and 12 eight-meter siren towers have been set up throughout nine districts of Ulaanbaatar so far.
Three television stations including Mongolian National Broadcaster (MNB), UBS and Mongol HD, as well as nine radio stations such as FM 102.5, Auto Radio 96.3, Family Radio 104.5, Lavain Egshig 97.5, Mongolian National Radio 106, Shine Dolgion Radio 107.5, Best Radio 98.5, Khamag Mongol Radio 95.1 and Tengerleg Radio 103.6 have installed an emergency broadcast system.
The broadcast system is linked to 6,986 meter long LAN-network of the Research Center for Astronomy and Geophysics of the Mongolian Academy of Sciences, National Agency for Meteorology, Hydrology and Environmental Monitoring, and Orbitnet LLC’s Data Center.
Alarm transmitters were set up at MNB’s main building, Chinggeltei Mountain, Melz Mountain in Baganuur District, and Tamgiin Undur Mountain in Nalaikh District
A mobile emergency communications center was installed at a five-ton capacity truck in order to keep the emergency alarms activated in case of faults at the center in the NEMA building.
Earthquake sensors have been set up at 12 earthquake-prone locations in Bulgan, Dundgovi, Tuv and Selenge Provinces.
