Third Annual Dissemination Event 

On October 14, 2021, FIRE-IN partners organised the first hybrid (physical/digital) meeting since the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic. The Annual Dissemination Event with 60 participants, approximately half of which were present at the event in person, was held during the 127th French Fire Association Conference in Marseille, France. The agenda of the event reflected the main focus areas of the project: network building, engaging with other relevant networks and organisations, showcasing promising technologies and innovative Fire & Rescue solutions and stimulating knowledge exchange on the latest issues in the international Fire & Rescue community.
After a brief overview of the project's progress (download PPT), the participants had a chance to familiarise themselves with the activities of the International Association of Fire and Rescue Services (CTIF), presented by its former president, Tore Erikson, learned about the benefits of joining the Crisis Management Innovation Network Europe (CMINE) – an online hub for crisis management professionals - from John Hall (Download PPT) and explored possibilities of standardisation support for FIRE-IN together with Patricia Compard, chair of CEN/TC 391, Societal and Citizen Security. (Download PPT).
Four technology providers presented their Fire & Rescue related innovations, ranging from from drones to mobile applications. Scroll down to see which technologies were presented.
And finally, the lessons learned from the latest disasters in Europe were presented to the participants: the Gjierdrum landslide in Norway – by Ole Anders Hoilmvaag from the Norwegian Directorate for Civil Protection (DSB) and the catastrophic forest fire season in the Eastern Mediterranean by Dr. Gavriil Xanthopoulos from the Institute of Mediterranean Forest Ecosystems, Greece.
