Limitations in the cross vulnerabilities (people, property, environment) to optimize task prioritization and decision making.
The ability to obtain critical information remotely about the extent, perimeter, or interior of the incident
The ability to monitor the physiological signs of responders
The of agencies and communities to deal with forest fires requires an adequate of fire and its timely communication, reliable early-warning systems, as well as the of personnel for efficient operations.
Shortcomings in planning and managing large scale evacuation of population in urban areas
Recent COVID-19 has demonstrated that EU states have so far failed to endorse a solid pandemics/epidemics communication methodology, develop clear guidelines and enforce use of these guidelines in crisis situations.
As a result, the communication was often haphazard, with different organizations and authorities occasionally disagreeing in their assessments of the situation and recommendations. Part of the population overestimated the danger and panicked, other part underestimated it and endangered themselves and others, while the trust in authorities sunk, leaving space to rumours, conspiracy theories, civil unrests and riots.
Insufficiency in the ability to report dangerous areas and situation overview from multiple and non-traditional sources (e.g. crowdsourcing and social media) into operations.
Understanding how future changes in climate will affect forest fires and associated emissions of greenhouse gases, in Europe and globally, is important to determine adaptation and potential of forests.
Wildland–urban and rural–urban interfaces are the spatial manifestation of the coupling of fire and people, and the most proximate scale of exposure and The abandonment of rural lands and the expansion of urban areas led to the creation of important interfaces between built infrastructures and vegetation with high fuel load that, when burning, create very significant threats to people and make firefighting and other civil protection operations much more difficult to coordinate.
