    Description

    Szendrő Fire Department is located in the northeastern part of Hungary. The main task is to fight against wildfire and mitigate the impact of fire at the Aggtelek National Park -- which belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage list. Because of greater effectiveness, in 2004 the Fire Department started a project named Integrated Vegetation Fire Management (IVFM). The IVFM consist of two main parts: Peripheries and Modules. The land use planning, finance, public relations, education, media connections, protective equipment belongs to Peripheries. The Modules are: Tower based environment monitoring and fire detection system, Mobile command control unit and Static and dynamic decision support system. The tower based environment and fire detection system address the Fire Department by hot information. The signal to the Fire Department is not depends on subjectivity; the alarm sign is in fire fighters hand. It means the start of intervention can be as soon as possible. The project develops a static and dynamic decision support system. It is based on robot reconnaissance aircraft (UAV)-- dynamic parts; and the GIS -- static parts. The data supplied by the robot reconnaissance aircraft is combined with the GIS based fuel model and other information to predict the fire activity. The system provides fire fighters accurate information to increase efficiency of fire fighting.
