The hotter and drier summer months tend to prolong the growing season. A higher evaporation rate in the hotter months further dries out the forests. This also increases the risk of forest fires.
Basic intervention map
We draw up basic intervention maps that serve as an important starting point for fighting forest fires. These basic maps provide emergency services with important information in case of an emergency:
- Analysis of access to forest areas (roads, passability, transfer points, passing points)
- Analysis of water supply points (flowing water, standing water, reservoirs, hydrants, fire water basins)
- Identify suitable main transfer points and water supply points for helicopters
- Fire compartment planning with fire protection corridors and fire water planning
In-depth site analyses provide information on the regional risk of drought and the soil properties. Using this knowledge, we prepare fire hazard and fire risk maps or advise you on adapted silviculture based on the climatic conditions.
