Mega-Fires Arrive in Europe: The Greek Experience and AFF Response in 2021

23 Mar 2022

Fire season 2021 in Greece was the most difficult fire season we have to face since 2007. It gave us 13 extreme wildfire events, 3 of them at the same day and burned more than 115.000 hectares. EU has mobilized one of the largest ever European deployments of firefighters and aircrafts in history and the Hellenic Fire Corps had to coordinate 106 Greek and foreign aerial means.

The National Coordination Center of Operations and Crisis Management manages and coordinates all the forest fires in Greece and is represented by all the competent bodies, such as Hellenic Army, Air Force, Hellenic Police and Forest Protection Service.

Fire fighting fires with the integration and demonstration of innovative means will be a legacy for the generations to come. New technologies and our new system “Engage” is the first step for us to get involved with new applications and capacities that we couldn’t have before. It’s more than certain that technology not only can help us to make our job easier but also can give us more time. Time is the most important factor when we have to deal with disasters.
