Combating fire with fire: New methods for preventing and fighting forest fires
FIRE PARADOX is an Innovative Approach of Integrated Wildland Fire Management Regulating the Wildfire Problem by the Wise Use of Fire: Solving the Fire Paradox.
Wildfires are a major problem for many European societies threatening human lives and property with disastrous impacts particularly at the wildland-urban interface (WUI). On the other hand humans always used fire as a tool to regulate nature and traditional use of fire is known in many regions of Europe. The understanding of this paradox is thus essential for finding solutions for integrated wildland fire management. The Project led by the Centro de Ecologia Aplicada in Lisbon ran from 2007 to 2010 under the EU FP6.
Today, the ENHANCE project takes a look at existing partnerships and how to strengthen them. Everybody count in forest fire resilience… The following video provide a different view “Combating fire with fire”.
