Description :

FIRES is an innovation project focusing on the automation/integration of Disaster response plans that was submitted to the Federal Science Policy in the framework of the “Multiannual information society support programme”.

The support programme makes it possible to test NoKeos, the multidisciplinary platform for disaster management, against the organisational and system-technical needs and wishes of the relief agencies in Belgium and thus to further improve the platform. (bottom-up approach)

In a first phase NoKeos is attuned to the real and most urgent users´ needs, and this mainly experimentally, via a delimited yet representative test environment.
The ultimate objective is the vertical and horizontal integration of assistance in the event of a disaster.

In a second phase one seeks to further optimise the information collection and distribution by means of an extensive integration with the most "appropriate" applications or hardware.
Specifically we are thinking here in the first instance of a linkage with OSR, GIS-Vlaanderen and a Hazmat dispersion model.

NoKeos distinguishes itself from all already-existing initiatives on automation of emergency plans not only by collecting usable DATA in a structured way, but also by interactively implementing the DISASTER RESPONSE PLANS itself, so that both data and procedures can be used in real time to support decision-making.

Herein lies the innovative aspect of the FIRES project : the organisation of the provision of services is focused on "knowledge distribution" especially concerning "readiness", "real-time decision-making support and coherence" and "measurability".
