Our APPROACH

FIRE-RES is built around the concept of Integrated Fire Management. This is a planning and operational approach that includes social, economic, cultural and ecological dimensions. Its objective is to minimize the damage caused by wildfires and maximize its benefits.

To do this, FIRE-RES includes 4 main pillars.

OUR APPROACH

FIRE-RES adopts the Integrated Fire Management Approach.

This wildfire risk reduction strategy exploits synergies between fire prevention-preparedness, detection-response and restoration-adaptation in a holistic manner, assuming the interconnectedness of these 3 phases.

Prevention & Preparedness

Educate the public to take precautions to prevent and to be ready in case of potentially harmful fires

Adaptation & Restoration

Rehabilitate and restore areas impacted by extreme wildfires

Detection & Response

Anticipate and mitigate the impacts of extreme wildfire events
