+ Scope and objectives

I International Scientific Seminar on Preparation and pre-planning activities for wildfire response ‘Objectives and scope of training’ is an event supporting international research project entitled Integrated Technological and Information Platform for wildfire Management (SILVANUS; project leader: Universita Telematica Pegaso, Italy). The project “(…) envisages to deliver an environmentally sustainable and climate resilient forest management platform through innovative capabilities to prevent and combat against the ignition and spread of forest fires”. The seminar focuses on issues of task 3.3 of the project and regards Preparation and pre-planning activities for wildfire response.

The main objective of the seminar is to identify and discuss objectives and scope of training for fire services, forest services, UAV operators and public administration representatives involved in wildfire response. The training scope should cover operations to be carried out during first period after wildfire ignition, ascribing into early detection and communication of the hazard, immediate disposal of wildfire responders, comprehensive recognition of hazard situation (from ground and air), effective getting of the resources to the wildfire scene, firefighting tactics (including ensuring continuous access to water) and cooperation between entities fighting the fire. Special attention should be paid on use of modern technologies as well as best organisational, equipment and tactical solutions.

Our ambition after the seminar is to be able to indicate general training directions related to preparation and pre-planning activities for wildfire response, basing on partial results of SILVANUS project and opinions expressed by the seminar participants.
