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.
Acquiring skills in terms of identifying risks, controlling causes of fire and minimizing their consequences, use and application of prevention and protection systems and techniques, as well as the relevant regulations and standards are the basic elements for the development of innovative resources in fighting fires.
Knowledge cycle should focus on training specific roles and risks and also on considering the capacity building towards more resilience societies. It is also important to consider organizational learning focusing efforts in key risks and opportunities and to build a shared understanding of emergency and train interagency scenarios.

Conceptual compilation of the results collected in 2018 2019 during Fire-in workshops about knowledge cycle
I. HIGH FLOW OF RESPONDERS IN HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT
II.HIGH IMPACT, LOW
|III.MULTI-AGENCY/MULTI-LEADERSHIP ENVIRONMENT||IV.HIGH LEVEL OF UNCERTAINTY|
|Train specific roles and risks||Organizational learning focusing efforts in key risks and opportunities||Build a shared understanding of emergency, and train interagency scenarios||Focus on capacity building towards more resilient societies|
Differentiate between operational, tactical, strategical and chain of command training
3. Responders should invest in new technologies.
5. Population should be train to actas first-responders
1. Towards a Complete cycle of knowledge.
a.SOPs: Adjust Standard Operational Procedures:
b. Study and learn from different actors
c. Sources of knowledge:
d. Combine experts and specialist who accumulate knowledge
e. Keep the knowledge of the organization as a priority
2. Training: Cost-efficiency of trainings,exercises, practices…
4. Broaden focus learning: Focus on behaviour of risk elements
1. Shared understanding.
b. Create a catalogue of experiences, best practices and lessons learnt
3. Train values > Human factor
4. Sources of knowledge:
a. Map with existing networks
b. Engage network of experts
c. Map centers of knowledge and capabilities
d. Share the knowledge cycle with scientists
e. Exchange of experience networks
5. Organize multiagency joint trainings.
1. Study integral risk management at a large scale, focus on the interphase.
2. Understand probabilistic forecast of different scenarios.
4. Close collaboration between research and responders:
a. Redefine constrains.
b. Integrate research laboratories as responders.
c. Develop basic science concerning drivers of the risk phenomena.
5. Certify/validate models.
6. Train crews and commanders indecision-making and communication and synchronizing activities with other agents.
