Resource management during long-term response operations (DRIVER+)

Insufficiencies in terms of resource management (human resources, hardware, etc.) during multi-stakeholder long-term operations.

Strategic

Adequate technology for communication with the public (STAMINA)

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. In addition, the communication with the public was also inadequate - on the one hand impeding the use of information provided by the public in crisis manageent and on the other hand causing confusion and even panic among the population at first and leading to erosion of trust in authorities, thus facilitating the rise of rumours, conspiracy theories, civil unrests and even riots. 

Strategic

Forest fires: Firefighting Techniques (DRMKC)

The increasing intensity of wildfires, together with the increased concern about fire safety and costs, requires better strategies and tactics for firefighting.

Strategic

Modelling and visualization of threats' dynamics (DRIVER+)

Limitations in the ability to model real-time ( phase) or pre-event ( phase) dynamics of various threats and visualization of obtained results in a form that can be used directly by the incident commander.

Strategic

Forest fires: Fire Safety (DRMKC)

Safety is the first concern of all involved in forest fires. The optimisation of operations, such as firefighters’ equipment and the use of forest roads for evacuation and for safe firefighting, are all part of the fire safety issue.

Strategic

Adequate communication technology for crisis management (STAMINA)

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.

Forest fires: fire behavior (DRMKC)

Understandding the manner in which a fire reacts to the variables of fuel, weather, and topography, including variables as rate of spread and intensity, can help both in fighting the already ignited fires and in .

 

 

Strategic

Backtracking of potentially infected persons (Johanniter Austria)

If a patient is identified as infectious after he/she was transported by the ambulance, we have to backtrace all contact persons of the ambulance car team and test them, as the car is not disinfected after each transport.

Strategic

Assessment of cross vulnerabilities (DRIVER+)

Limitations in the cross vulnerabilities (people, property, environment) to optimize task prioritization and decision making.

Strategic

Rapid identification of hazardous agents and contaminants (IFAFRI)

The ability to rapidly identify hazardous agents and contaminants

Strategic

Forest fires: Preparedness (DRMKC)

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.

Strategic

Monitor the physiological signs of emergency responders (IFAFRI)

The ability to monitor the physiological signs of responders
