FOREST ROADS FOR CIVIL PROTECTION (FORCIP+)

The project aims at improving the use of the rural road network in case of emergency, especially forest fires. Through transnational cooperation a wide range of inventories of existing road infrastructure will be accessible, different requirements will be met and a homogeneous model will be established. ICT applications will be developed to improve the efficiency in case of emergency; establish classifications and propose improvements on the maintenance of these facilities, all geared to issues of civil protection. Forest fire fighting vehicles will be equipped with GNSS in order to improve time response and increase fuel savings. Fire specialists will be able to use network analysis for resources planning, locating most suitable places for ground means waiting areas or identifying forest surfaces where takes longer to access. Other actors involved in emergencies will be able to use web management applications and public information.
