Information management

Storing (log-keeping) and sharing of information such as collected data, assessments made and decisions taken.

For successful firefighting, information is key.
Due to the complex nature of firefighting, the operators must collect and manage a lot of informations.
These informations can be structured in a lot of different formats. Often data are proprietary to private or public organization. This causes problems when data needs to be harmonized or shared across organizations. 

Information management needs to focus on the information cycle, the management of key information focused on decision-making. It is also important to define a common information management processes between agencies and to provide an efficient flexible flow of information for a shared understanding.

PYROLIFE INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM: SAVE THE DATE(S)!

Towards an Integrated Fire Management

Free Webinar Series – Every Wednesday | 3 June – 22 July

Fire is a natural process and as such, humans have been living with fire for a long time. However, recent wildfires in traditionally fire prone areas of Southern Europe have shown that fire behaviour has changed beyond what is currently understood. This shows the need for a better approach to prevention and adaptation. In Northwest Europe, traditionally seen as less fire prone, people on the ground are seeing the increased dangers of fire to their communities; yet awareness of their institutions and populations remains low.
