FireAware, a free mobile App for fire notification

Science and citizens brought together in a “Citizen Science” experiment to fight fire hazard. This is the goal of FireAware, the new application for iOS devices that allows citizens to send real time notifications and collects anonymous data useful to perform statistical fire analyses in the Apulia region and over the whole Italian country.

FireAware has been developed by the CMCC (Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change) Foundation, within the scope of the project OFIDIA 2 – Operational FIre Danger prevention plAtform 2 that the municipality of Lecce is a partner of. The project, started in march 2018 and lasting 24 months, is co-funded by the European Union, European Regional Development Fund (E.R.D.F.), under the Interreg V-A Greece – Italy 2014-2020 Programme.

Available for free download on the App Store, FireAware is an experiment that, through the application of cutting-edge scientific knowledge and technological innovations, allows citizens to play an active role in improving and raising collective awareness about fire danger by means of three simple steps: specifying fire intensity, indicating the distance from the fire based on the user geo-localized position, and sending the information.

It is worth noting that the App is not meant to replace any national emergency number/service. In case of fire, users are encouraged to report any fire danger situation to the competent authorities through the official channels (dial 115 for the National Fire Service).
