The SAFERS project aims to implement an Earth Observation-enabled, modular, interoperable, and web-based platform for decision support in wildfire management able to act along all key phases of the emergency management cycle. To ensure that this platform will be beneficial to all professionals we have prepared an online survey that aims to identify key requirements from organisations towards the development of a system appropriately embedded to assist in decision making and operational needs.
Forest fires are exacerbated by extreme weather conditions, which are increasing both in frequency and in magnitude due to climate change effects. Globally, massive fires have swept through forests and other landscapes in an alarming rate, resulting in the loss of human lives, destruction of homes and biodiversity, and emitting millions of tons of CO2 together with other pollutants in addition to other destructive impacts.
