The development of exhaustive wildfire management strategies is a priority, especially in Mediterranean countries where fire-prone conditions are widespread. The lack of prevention and preparedness capacities and the difficulties in rapidly sharing useful information to cope with the direct impacts on exposed people among first responders and Civil Protection Authorities (CPAs) are important issues. Extreme weather conditions characterize the main wildfire emergencies in southern EU countries [1], where the fire propagation is rapid and the authorities struggle to cope with wildfire events.
