Use technology to assess risks and minimize responder’s engagement (TOP CHALLENGE)


  • Tools for situational assessment and risk awareness.
  • Locate responders (and victims) at all times, anywhere and be aware of how long they can sustain efforts (I.1.b).
  • Identify and map the exposure.
  • Unmanned terrestrial and aerial tools to assess the risk and unmanned tools to transport equipment on the field.
  • Technologies used in interventions should be:
    • Useful.
    • Simple, intuitive and easy to use.
    • Easy to integrate and interoperable.
    • Easy to transport, deployable on field, light, with high autonomy.
    • Robust, resistant, long duration, able to tolerate severe/harsh conditions.
    • Open access.
    • Usable by people with disabilities

(TOP CHALLENGE scored 2/12 among our 12 best challenges)

  • Have available and reliable tools for rapid diagnostic.
  • Assure the maintenance/continuity of the energy (electricity, fuels…) and communications.
  • Intelligence applied to materials and tools used in operations.
  • Responders should invest in the development of new technologies (procurements of innovation, public-private network…).
  • Involve the users from the beginning, at the designing phase of new tools and services.
  • Adequate forecasts and simulations to local scale and microscale, including smoke/evacuation modelling
