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.
