Knowledge cycle

Acquiring skills in terms of identifying risks, controlling causes of fire and minimizing their consequences, use and application of prevention and protection systems and techniques, as well as the relevant regulations and standards are the basic elements for the development of innovative resources in fighting fires.


Knowledge cycle should focus on training specific roles and risks and also on considering the capacity building towards more resilience societies. It is also important to consider organizational learning focusing efforts in key risks and opportunities and to build a shared understanding of emergency and train interagency scenarios.

Conceptual compilation of the results collected in 2018 2019 during Fire-in workshops about knowledge cycle




Train specific roles and risksOrganizational learning focusing efforts in key risks and opportunitiesBuild a shared understanding of emergency, and train interagency scenariosFocus on capacity building towards more resilient societies

a. Evaluate and maintainb. b.Assign tasks considering the qualifications.

2. Standard Operational Procedures(SOPs):

Differentiate between operational, tactical, strategical and chain of command training

3. Responders should invest in new technologies.

4. Training: Command post tactical training

5. Population should be train to actas first-responders

1. Towards a Complete cycle of knowledge.

a.SOPs: Adjust Standard Operational Procedures:

b. Study and learn from different actors
- Collect experiences
- Collect lessons learned
- Share experiences

c. Sources of knowledge:

d. Combine experts and specialist who accumulate knowledge

e. Keep the knowledge of the organization as a priority

2. Training: Cost-efficiency of trainings,exercises, practices…

3. Optimize the collection of lessons learned

4. Broaden focus learning: Focus on behaviour of risk elements

1. Shared understanding.

2. Experiences:
a. Standardize competences for specific positions at European level.

b. Create a catalogue of experiences, best practices and lessons learnt

3. Train values > Human factor

4. Sources of knowledge:

a. Map with existing networks

b. Engage network of experts

c. Map centers of knowledge and capabilities

d. Share the knowledge cycle with scientists

e. Exchange of experience networks

5. Organize multiagency joint trainings.

6. Laison officers

1. Study integral risk management at a large scale, focus on the interphase.

2. Understand probabilistic forecast of different scenarios.

3. Understand the drivers, challenges and constrains that make successful some best practices and lessons learned.

4. Close collaboration between research and responders:

a. Redefine constrains.

b. Integrate research laboratories as responders.

c. Develop basic science concerning drivers of the risk phenomena.

5. Certify/validate models.

6. Train crews and commanders indecision-making and communication and synchronizing activities with other agents.
