Adaptation strategies

It would be expedient to consider the new system of conditions that are required for rescue, repair and other  contingency action upon weather impacts. Fighting of forest, meadow, bush and reed fires require substantial standby assets, considering also the increasing hazards. The extinguishing of fires and the halting of the propagation of fire require off road vehicles and machinery and the on site availability of fire-extinguishing materials. The timely observation of fires is of special importance and the standby stock shall include electrically driven small robotic aeroplanes, softwares that forecast the propagation of the fires, and materials and tools that are needed for fire extinguishing by blasting.
