RDI’s Leonardo da Vinci-funded wildland fire management project, EuroFire, brings together partners with international expertise and experience in wildland fire research, management and training in order to develop, evaluate, produce and distribute a new European-wide, multi-lingual on-line training resource. The project will research and review competency-based wildfire training systems and identify good practice examples from Europe and around the world. This research will then inform the production of competency-based basic training materials specifically for use in European countries and draw this together into one, on-line and readily accessible website in a form that is appropriate to all end users. When complete, this will provide a module-based training resource that can be used by industry practitioners to update their knowledge, learn new skills or increase their understanding of wildfire management techniques.
