Vegetation fires pose a special challenge for leaders because the necessary operational tactics deviate from the usual standard rules of engagement. Making decisions is difficult in fires that are usually dynamic and confusing, and there is a risk of jeopardising the success of the operation and ultimately the personnel. In the past, fundamental mistakes often led to situations getting out of control.
For this reason, @fire offers seminars for leaders in vegetation firefighting, aimed at a target group ranging from group leaders to association leaders, as well as leaders of forestry and other organisations.

Leaders who are involved in operational planning outside of the fire service can also benefit from a community hazard analysis. Geographical and infrastructural conditions are analysed and special features such as (former) military or tourist areas are considered. Conclusions can be incorporated into advance planning for critical operations, so that the probability of possible errors can be reduced in advance. Ultimately, the analysis within the framework of a fire brigade requirements plan can form the basis for the new procurement of special material and suitable emergency vehicles.
