Information arrives in little notices in our intranet. All what is happening is not important to us, may think the people that chooses what can be transmitted to us and what not.
Certainly, the kind of things that arrive to our account are varied. We can find a job offer to technician or administrative, and the most of times, we can't access to these. All information is posted in our internal comunications system and it can be seen by all people than are allowed in firefighter's computer system.
And then, why we can't read information about prescribed fires? Why we can't find notices about planification of prescribed areas? I know that I, as a simple firefighter, can't assist to these fires, but why I can't receive information about them?
Why is difficult? Because "normal" firefighters (els pobrebombers) don't know what they are. Then, how do you want the common people accepts fire as a forest management tool?
Prescribed fire is an important and interesting tool to manage risk, to reduce ignition capacity and potencial of burn in a wild forest. In many parts of the Iberian peninsule, there are some causes that have interfered with the natural ecosystem of forest: Reduction of grazing animals, Reduction of wood consumption, low profitability of the forest as a business... These and others have created a different forest than 50 years ago. Forest is bigger and denser, with more combustible (more mass, more trees, more died specimens), more stressed (more competence between trees and wild bushes, ...)
Why a firefighter can not know the prescribed fires policy and activities promoted by other firefighters?
If we want that people understand that fire is a good tool, all firefighters have to know prescribed fires policy...
You can learn about prescribed fires nearly in The 2017 World Conference on Natural Resource Modeling will be organised by the Resource Modeling Association and the Pau Costa Foundation in Barcelona, on the 6-9 June 2017.
