Enhancing our society's resilience against wildfires
Changing climate is increasing the risk of wildfires. As temperatures continue to soar in the future, scientists warn that extreme fires will become more common. Meaningful early warning forecasts, early identification and tracking as well as effective response are of paramount importance to save lives and contain environmental damage. The EU-funded SAFERS project will develop a complex emergency management system capable of acting along the whole emergency management cycle, thanks to the coupled use of heterogeneous Big Data, advanced models, and AI. Earth Observation data from Copernicus and GEOSS will be the primary data source, which will be combined with data from social media, smoke detectors, and mobile applications. This will allow first responders, citizens and decision makers to generate new and more accurate information, enhancing our society's resilience against wildfires.
