Introducing the project

Objectives

The project was funded within ERA4CS Joint call with the purpose of creating an international collaborative community, expert in remote sensing soil and vegetation, risk management and mitigation for the fire and post fire risk management in Europe at climatic time scales.

SERV_FORFIRE aims at creating an international collaborative community, expert in remote sensing soil and vegetation, risk management and mitigation, to provide climate information along with decision makers and planning authorities

Case studies

SERV_FORFIRE Joint Activities will take place in Pilot Areas which have been selected by the partners as more appropriate for this action.

Training activities

CNR-IMAA personnel has organized training activities for the usage of operative software for the fire management in the period 28 June – 11 October 2018. The training activities were addressed to the end users, specifically to the Dipartimento Protezione Civile Basilicata as stakeholder and associated partner of SERV_FORFIRE.

Dissemination

A continuous cooperation has been established by FMI team with the Finnish Rescue Services aiming at further development of fire danger forecasting services, including discussion about the services developed within SERV_FORFIRE.

Fire season

During the fire season 2018, the fire danger remained very high for almost three months in Finland. There was about 1400 more forest fires than in a typical summer. The exceptionally dry conditions and high fire danger emphasized the importance of the fluent exchange of information between FMI and Rescue Services.
