Management of forest fire incidents
February 16 ; 9:30 – 11:30 CET
his CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) is intended to benefit the cooperation among the EU and global wildfire management community, comprising incident commanders, fire officers, forest managers, personnel of the civil protection agencies and Emergency services.
This will be approached through a guide to be used by all the interested parties in the EU countries. It is expected that this can be further developed, monitored and maintained up to date in a coherent manner.
At the same time, such standardization will push the EU security industry dealing with the development and deployment of related Command & Control systems and solutions. Finally, the outcome of the planned CWA will provide formal visual communication guidelines to support the communication and cooperation of the organizations in charge of managing wildfires and the organizations supporting the field operations (e.g., police, ambulance services, coast guard, etc.).
