A forest fire broke out in Saxon Switzerland, Germany on July 25, 2022. It took several weeks to extinguish the fire. In addition to the vehicles and equipment of the firefighters assisting on site, Rosenbauer was also represented at the operation with digital solutions.

After the announcement of the cooperation between Rosenbauer and the technology company OroraTech, the Wildfire Service (WFS) is now being deployed in the peak season for German forest fires. State Fire Service Director Dr. Dirk Schneider was given access to WFS at short notice and without much red tape. This rapid help was arranged by a colleague from the Saxony-Anhalt Ministry of the Interior, who was following the major incident in Saxony.

In addition to the preventive monitoring of areas at risk of forest fires, the system can also be used to predict the development of the situation in terms of risk. On the basis of this information – if properly read and used – the tactical area can be effectively pre-planned. State Fire Service Director Dr. Dirk Schneider thanked for the support.

WildfireThe cooperation between Rosenbauer and OroraTech is now to be expanded. The information from the in-house fleet management system Connected Fleet and the operations management system Connected Command are to be integrated into the Wildfire Service.

If you are interested in the Wildfire Service or would like to try out the expansion in cooperation with Rosenbauer in the coming months, please do not hesitate to contact us.
