Inadequate fire-fighting knowledge and shortage of fire-suppression resources and operational means for operating in Wildland Urban Interface areas
- There is no adequate knowledge concerning wildfire management in WUI areas, a non-homogeneous environment with numerous particularities ((including human presence spatial and temporal patterns).
- Missing geographic information about people and buildings in danger during a wildland fire.
- Challenges in training of first responders in the WUI environment
- No specific firefighting operational means, either terrestrial or aerial, suitable for intervention in the WUI area exist.
