Firecrest is a Master of Entertainment Technology (MET) team at the Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute (M-ITI) for the Fall semester of 2014, working together with the Civil Protection of Madeira.

Given the recent incidents that happened at the levadas and walks, we intend to raise awareness of the tourists and locals about the different possible dangers and safety precautions, in order to make them prevent and better respond to said situations in the levadas.
