CCC addressed

Scope, rationale, context: general description. Precise here if this technology is currently use (eg. company name or contact info) Refire is a research project running for two years (2012-2013), co-funded by the European Commission, Directorate-General Home Affairs in the framework of the call “CIPS Action Grants 2010”. The project aims to the adoption of effective location and communication services for indoor and deep-indoor emergencies and define a set of standards and protocols able to enable daily use of interoperable systems. Whatever the origin of an emergency, a response fast and effective enough can drastically change the resulting losses. During the first phases of an emergency, when the first few responders have to assume more risks having the opportunity to block the escalation of the incident into a higher scale emergency, and after on, when the increasing number of responders from different organisations boost the confusion and the complexity of the coordination tasks, what you really need is to know where your operators are and to communicate with them, reliably, anywhere, anytime. Refire builds on the results of previous R&D projects and available industrial solutions to offer a solution ready to for the market, thus paving the way for a day-to-day use of effective location and communication services for indoor and deep-indoor emergencies. In a nutshell, the REFIRE project is aimed at tailoring existing capabilities to a specific package and at integrating them in a reference implementation. Such reference implementation will be developed around a non-proprietary standard for data and equipment interfaces, so that future interoperability of devices manufactured by any vendors across Europe is ensured.
