SATWAYS – Management of forest fire incidents – SITAC-based symbology

This CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) is intended to benefit the cooperation among the EU and global wildfire management community, comprising incident commanders, fire officers, forest managers, personnel of the civil protection agencies and Emergency services.

This will be approached through a guide to be used by all the interested parties in the EU countries. It is expected that this can be further developed, monitored, and maintained up to date in a coherent manner.


At the same time, such standardization will push the EU security industry to deal with the development and deployment of related Command & Control systems and solutions. Finally, the outcome of the planned CWA will provide formal visual communication guidelines to support the communication and cooperation of the organizations in charge of managing wildfires and the organizations supporting the field operations (e.g., police, ambulance services, coast guard, etc.).


The kick-off meeting will be held on Wednesday, 16 February 2022, from 09.30-11.30 as a web meeting.

Requests to participate in the Workshop and/or comments on the project plan are to be submitted by 11 February 2022 to cristina.popa@asro.ro1. You are kindly requested to use the commenting form below.
