The project aims at improving the use of the rural road network in case of emergency, especially forest fires. ​

Through transnational cooperation a wide range of inventories of existing road infrastructure will be accessible, ​ different requirements will be met and a ​ homogeneous model will be established. ​
ICT applications will be developed to improve the efficiency of use and​  propose improvements on the maintenance​
​Forest fire fighting vehicles will be equipped with GNSS receivers in order to improve time response and increase fuel savings.​
​Fire specialists will be able to use network analysis for resources planning, locating most suitable places for ground means waiting areas or identifying forest surfaces where takes longer to access. ​
​Other actors involved in emergencies will be able to use web management applications and public information.
