CILIFO organizes an awareness day on attention to diversity during forest fires

The conference will be carried out by the ONCE Foundation within the framework of the European project CILIFO on research and firefighting, led by the Council of Andalusia (Junta de Andalucía in Spanish)

The ONCE Foundation organizes in Seville the first day of social awareness on attention to diversity in forest fires. The initiative is part of the European project CILIFO (Iberian Center for the Investigation and Fighting of Forest Fires), led by the Council of Andalusia.

It aims to contribute to reducing the risks faced by people with disabilities, elderly people and vulnerable groups in a natural disaster.

This meeting is aimed at emergency management-oriented actors, as well as organizations and individuals that live in or enjoy the forest environment.

It will take place in Seville, on Thursday 28 November, from 10:30 to 13:30, at the Regional Office of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development of the Council of Andalusia.

During the conference, we will explain in a practical way how to respond to an emergency in a forest environment and how to adequately support people with disabilities. For instance, we will talk about how to guide blind people in complex environments and how to communicate with deaf people. In addition, advice will be provided to enhance communication of emergencies through technology.
