Wildfires and WUI fires emergency planning towards a next generation of decision support systems


Ensuring people safety in case of wild5ires, and WUI (Wildland-Urban Interface) 5ires in particular, implies complexities, where land management, organisation of 5ire5ighting services and emergency management should be integrated having one consistent vision. In the wild5ires where most of the casualties occurred, one or more of those elements were found faulty. Some of the worst disasters occurred in the 2017 – 2019 period have shown clearly that emergency management is pivotal to save human lives. The following considerations, presented in the Human Behaviour and Evacuation Modelling GEO-SAFE Workshop (Greenwich-UK February 20th, 2020), highlight that a new approach to emergency planning, based on DSS fed by simulation models, can improve emergency management .
