Greece: Forest Fire Protection System (Řecko: Systém pro ochranu lesa před požáry)
Forest Fire Protection System is an integrated and scalable system based on ArcFIRE technology that uses several kinds of sensors such as cameras and meteorological stations for complete surveillance of the area of interest. It is an adjustable and open-architecture system that covers a wide range of customer needs.
ArcFIRE is a scalable, modular and customizable technology geo-platform that provides management solutions for the four stages of the forest Fire (FF) Life-Cycle which are:
- Awareness to minimize FF impacts to the environment and people as a result of operations made "prior to a fire"
- Emergency to assist planners, decision makers and fire fighters in their mission "during the fire"
- Impacts to assess & quantify environmental, economic & social Impacts "after the fire"
Dissemination to provide information on international best practices and on "lessons learned" from past fire events
