The ability to create actionable intelligence based on data and information from multiple sources
Insufficiencies in terms of resource management (human resources, hardware, etc.) during multi-stakeholder long-term operations.
The Ability to Incorporate Information from Multiple and Nontraditional Sources into Incident Command Operations
The ability to conduct on-scene operations remotely without endangering responders
Barriers in to provide medical assistance to casualties either by transporting them to a safe place or bringing medical service to the scene (when medical care is not provided by firefighters’ units) - especially in forest fires.
Limitations in the planning of resources (qualified personnel and equipment) for during large scale and long-term
management is a collective effort encompassing various organisations that to work seamlessly together across domain and administrative borders.
Damages and losses produced by wildfires depend on fire regimes and ecosystems’ vulnerability to fire. Fire severity is one of the main factors affecting damages and losses.
Understanding ecosystem's vulnerability and potential to adapt to such changes can help developing proactive and post-fire regeneration strategies.
The increase in extent and intensity of wildfires creates more challenges for managing fire and firefighting. Technological tools can play a key role through enhancing the information flow and supporting the decision support systems used by fire commanders to take adequate decisions (evacuation or confinement) and coordinate the action of first responders.
Shortcomings in the use of virtual reality to enhance of first responders in case of large scale evacuation, as a support for and .
