The proposed Automated Fire and Flood Hazard Protection System (AUTO-HAZARD PRO) integrates real-time and on-line fire and flood hazard management schemes into a GIS-type platform. AUTO-HAZARD PRO is scheduled to be developed in EU Member-State Disasters Management and Civil Protection Agencies. Collection, input, storage, management and analysis of the information will depend on advanced and automated methodologies using Remote Sensing, GPS, Digital Mapping and GIS. Proactive development of such infrastructure will assist in fast and realistic prevention and pre-suppression planning, real-time fire suppression operations, and rehabilitation of burned areas.
Expected products include:
wildfire danger rating indices;
Flood danger index;
Weather forecasting modeling;
Autonomous fire detection system;
On-line operational decision support system;
Training of personnel;
Dissemination of information and technology transfer.
