Incendi boschivi: indice meteorologico e tasso di pericolo (DRMKC)

L’indice di pericolo è un importante indicatore in tempo reale per i vigili del fuoco. Esso riassume fattori costanti (materiali combustibili, topografia) e variabili (condizioni meteorologiche) che influiscono sull’inizio, sull’espansione e sulla difficoltà di controllo, e i conseguenti danni degli incendi boschivi su un’area, in un unico numero che può essere facilmente visualizzato e utilizzato per un’allerta precoce.


Forecasting the development of an evolving epidemic or pandemic is challenging. Data from the early stages of an epidemic is often sparse and many times biased. However, during an ongoing epidemic, information on the potential impact is demanded by the public, media and decision makers.  There is a need for standardized tools that can forecast the course of an epidemic or pandemic. Since the development of such software is time consuming, there is insufficient time to do this during an evolving epidemic. If the tool is available in peacetime, policy makers can make good use of it for preparedness planning, training and communication. Such a tool would need to be updated and used regularly to ensure it would be useful in a crisis situation. Forecasts are never better than the data they are based on. New methods to tackle initial uncertainty surrounding epidemiological parameters are therefore needed. Not only the quality of data, but also the coverage is important. Therefore, data sources on disease burden at all levels of society is needed as input into the modelling tool.

Incendi boschivi: modelli spaziali e temporali degli incendi (DRMKC)

Le azioni di gestione e l’impiego di risorse per impedire gli incendi si basano su dove e come si verificano gli incendi. La comprensione di cosa rende un’area particolarmente soggetta agli incendi o meno non è importante solo per preservare i suoi valori e le sue risorse ma anche per prevenire che le azioni future di gestione, in particolare in aree dove si accumulano gli incendi, non provochino un aumento della vulnerabilità agli incendi boschivi.

Forest fires: Land, Aerial and Space Detection (DRMKC)

In extreme weather conditions, a fire start can rapidly develop into a large and intense wildfire with catastrophic effects. Timely and accurate detection requires the integration of fire behaviour and forest knowledge at strategic and tactical levels.


One of the initial challenges is to identify workforce gaps and the diversity and balance of disciplines required to counter infectious disease threats. Many health systems would benefit from systematically and dynamically quantifying and monitoring their own workforce shortages and assess the core competencies required to perform essential epidemic/pandemic response functions. Enumeration studies of this work force in Europe are hampered by the different systems and nomenclature used in the different Member States.


Pandemic management depends on adequate core capacities to prepare and respond to infectious disease threats in every country. In order to respond effectively to a pandemic, a knowledgeable skilled, effective and networked workforce with the right skill mix is essential. It has long been recognised that the best way to prevent the global spread of diseases is to detect and contain them while they are still local. This implies the presence of a local well trained public health workforce. A challenge identified is the difficulty in ensuring training reaches down to the local level. Unfortunately, experience has shown us that not all outbreaks will be detected and controlled while they are still local and we need to better prepare for large-scale epidemics and pandemics. The challenge then becomes one of integrating the response across sectors and wider geographical areas. Inter-sectoral and transnational simulation exercises can help to enhance the interoperability of preparedness plans of the different sectors such as civil protection, transport etc. can stimulate national training. Multi-country simulation exercises which would promote cross-border collaboration could prove to be a good investment and would support Article 4 of the EU Decision 1082/2013 on serious cross-border threats to health.


Forest fires: Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) (DRMKC)

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 risk mitigation 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.
