We would like to inform you about the latest developments in the FIRE-IN project. This issue is mainly focused on the third Annual Dissemination Event we organised in Marseille in October 2021. We had a chance to see several thought-provoking presentations on Fire & Rescue related topics and innovative solutions presented by technology providers during the event.
On October 14, 2021, FIRE-IN partners organised the first hybrid (physical/digital) meeting since the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic. The Annual Dissemination Event with 60 participants, approximately half of which were present at the event in person, was held during the 127th French Fire Association Conference in Marseille, France.
Dear FIRE-IN Friends and Partners,
Despite the pandemic, FIRE-IN continues its work in gathering Fire & Rescue experts from the entire Europe and beyond to share latest technologies, best practices and lessons learned. This year we are organising a hybrid event during the 127th French Fire Association Conference in Marseille, France.
What do you get from participation?
- Hear the latest from the FIRE-IN project
- Ask questions during a roundtable of FIRE-IN partners such as Crisis Management Innovation Network Europe (CMINE), International Association of Fire and Rescue Services (CTIF) and European Committee of Standardization (CEN TC 391).
- Learn about modern technologies directly from the providers: drones, terrain visualisation, geofencing and more.
- Listen to lessons learned from latest catastrophic events in Europe: floods, wildfires and landslides.

• Management of migration flows and asylum seekers
