Joint workshop on Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) Fire Management (30th October 2019)

Co-organised by MEDEA, HEIMDALL, FIRE-IN and WUI-VIEW projects. The workshop aimed at gathering practitioners to discuss current gaps, challenges and missing capabilities in risk awareness and communication, fire management and evacuation, in Wildland Urban Interface (WUI), which R&D can address. 22 participants from 8 countries (Bulgaria, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Romania and Spain) used 4 real use cases to identify existing capability gaps. From the interactions occurred during the workshop, TCP4 developed and later analysed 9 capability gaps attributed to challenges the practitioners are facing when respond to WUI fires.
