The name

In local Faroese language KIMA means ringing. When church bells ringing it is often related to church services. However it used to be different. In earlier days the church bell rang when something significant was happening and an important message had to get out to a whole village. The ringing signified that people immediately stopped what they were doing and gathered around as the church bell rang. An example is the storm bell which rang in cases of fire or when an enemy was approaching. Although reasons can differ and have changed over time we leverage KIMA when we need to gather people in cases of emergencies. With the name KIMA we use an expression which falls back on something traditional even though there is nothing traditional about this state of the art communication system.
