EFFIS, European Forest Fire Data Center (2000)

Description

The European Forest Fire Information System (EFFIS) established by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the Directorate General for Environment (DG ENV) of the European Commission (EC) supports the services in charge of the protection of forests against fires in the EU countries and provides the European Commission services and the European Parliament with updated and reliable information on wildland fires in Europe.

EFFIS addresses forest fires in Europe in a comprehensive way, providing EU level assessments from pre-fire to post-fire phases, thus supporting fire prevention, preparedness, fire fighting and post-fire evaluations.
