All mini-webinars held within the program Fire home school during the time of confinement due to COVID-19.
From March 26 to May 21 we will carry out this series of mini-webinars, which aim to share knowledge about forest fires at a multidisciplinary level. During this month, where more than half of the planet was confined, we have been followed 682 people live from 25 different countries: Germany, Andorra, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Chile, Croatia, Ecuador, Spain, United States, France, India, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, The Netherlands, Panama, Peru, Poland, Portugal, United Kingdom, Russia and Sweden. Deferred, through our channel YouTube add all the videos more than 4000 visualizations and an average of 280 views per presentation. There are still some sessions to develop and the day May 21 We will end this initiative with a very special presentation.

Fire management based on Aboriginal knowledge of Autralia
Much of Victor's work in the past 27 years has been based on the arts and reviving the values of traditional knowledge, particularly the traditional burning, through mentoring and leadership, as well as on-site training with Aboriginal communities and many non-indigenous Australians. He is also a co-founder of the National Workshops against Indigenous Fires, which have so far been organized in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. Victor has also connected with First Nations communities in California, Canada and the Sami people of Scandinavia, sharing cultural awareness practices related to caring for the country.

Introducing the VIPEX system; The fire drone
Surveillance of the extinct perimeter and real-time, geo-referenced detection of hot spots through the use of RPAS with great flight autonomy. A system that allows operational support in the tasks of surveillance of the extinct perimeter, monitoring of the fire front and location of firefighters who are fighting the fire in real time.

Presenting the Galician peasant culture against forest fires
Labregos and their ancestral culture on fire management. On the services that they offer to society to the peasants (from the Sierra de Ancares with the management of ecosystems highly resilient to fire: mountain mowing meadows and soutos, which represent passive structures against highly effective fire fronts.

Respiratory protection equipment in forest fires
Respiratory protection equipment does not protect by the quality of the filter but by the ability to isolate us from danger: the seal is what makes the difference. The Forest Firefighters are exposed to severe respiratory risks that cause immediate accidents during and after combat. However, the greatest respiratory risk is in the medium / long term due to occupational diseases related to continuous exposure to all types of pollutants.

Presenting "Share to grow"
Explain how sharing experiences on the ground can enhance the professionalism of a forest firefighter. Capitalizing experiences and knowledge is easy, we just need to open dialogue with the parties involved to understand, learn and thus see more clearly. The future is a challenge in terms of personnel selection, work, personal fulfillment, we can only advance if we do it as a team.

Forest fire prevention and domestic self-protection - GUARDIAN project
Firefighting training for residents of the area. Sessions that are linked to awareness and education talks adapted to different audiences. The creation of communities adapted to fire in I-UF areas is a challenge to save forests. The GUARDIAN project aims to take advantage of the wastewater generated by the Community itself and reuse it for its self-protection against fire.
PROMETHEUS, preventing the health of forest firefighters
A project to protect firefighters while they work, with a device that alerts them when to withdraw from the first line of fire. He was awarded in an international contest organized by IBM. Show the cognitive platform, the tests carried out at the GRAF de Catalunya and report on the next steps

Vegetation models for the Venezuelan Andes
The adequacy of vegetation models for the Venezuelan Andes. In Venezuela, specifically in the Venezuelan Andes, we do not have a tool that allows simulating fires, what is intended is to adapt the existing vegetation to the Rothermel models, in order to be able to use simulation programs to make assessments of possible damage, monitoring or behavior of fires, this may also serve to monitor, after the event, the possible damage that may arise from the fire

Forest fire extinguishing techniques with chain tractors. Mechanized Task Configuration
Exhibition of the different techniques for extinguishing forest fires with chain tractors: direct attack, parallel and indirect attack, control and liquidation of perimeters. Creation of accesses to other media. Different configurations of mechanized tasks in case of using forestry machinery in wooded areas.
Community fire management experiences in Bolivia
Faced with the problem of forest fires in Bolivia, the Friends of Nature Foundation (FAN) has been implementing community fire management actions for almost 10 years in strategic regions of the country, so as to contribute to the generation of a management model for forest fires based on the active participation of local communities in the country.
