Vietnamese Version of the EuroFire Standards


Capacitating Forestry, Agricultural and Fire Services of Vietnam in Landscape Fire Management and Local Rural Communities in Self-Defense against Wildfires

Recurrent wildfires in South East Asia have resulted in renewed national and international efforts to address the serious challenges in the arena of fire management. A widely perceived positive and earnest shift in the political landscape to tackle fire and smoke problems has similarly prompted the Global Fire Monitoring Center (GFMC), through the financial support of the Federal Republic of Germany, to assist in establishing the Regional Fire Management Resource Center – South East Asia Region (RFMRC-SEA) in 2017. This effort is in alignment with the decentralization efforts of the GFMC to, in large part, build up local country-wide and regional capacities. Since 2011, Indonesia and other Southeast Asian nations including Vietnam, comprising the Southeast Asia Regional Wildland Fire Network, have been a voluntary member of the greater 14-region Global Wildland Fire Network – for which the GFMC is serving as coordinator and secretariat.

In order to support competency and interoperability of agencies and civil society stakeholders in Europe the Global Fire Monitoring Center (GFMC) between 2006 and 2008 has developed, under the sponsorship of the EU Leonardo da Vinci programme, competency standards and basic training materials for professional and volunteer firefighters – the EuroFire Competency Standards and Training Materials. These standards and training materials turned out to be useful as a common source for capacitating actors who are preparing to cooperate across borders, e.g. in managing wildfire emergencies by rendering international assistance.

Within the frame of regional cooperation in Southeast Asia, the translations of the EuroFire Competency Standards and Training Materials to Vietnamese have been developed by Dr. Thuy Nguyen, Researcher at the Silviculture Research Institute, Vietnamese Academy of Forest Science, Ha Noi, Vietnam.

EUROFIRE-PROJECT HISTORY AND ENGLISH BASE VERSION


EuroFire A 2-years project from October 2006 to December 2008 funded by the EU Leonardo da Vinci programme. The project brought together partners with international expertise and experience in wildfire and prescribed fire research, management and training to develop, evaluate, produce and distribute new European-wide, multi-lingual on-line training resources.

The EuroFire project researched and reviewed competency based wildfire and prescribed fire training systems, including best practice examples from Europe and around the world. This research informed the production of competency based basic training resources, for use in European countries.

The EuroFire training resources have been specifically developed to support firefighting personnel, the land-based sector, sectoral organisations and education and training institutions.

The EuroFire outputs include: competency standards, training modules, illustrations and general guidance on a competency based training system. Training resources that can be used by industry practitioners to update their knowledge, learn new skills or increase their understanding of basic wildfire and prescribed fire management techniques.

For details of the EuroFire concept see:

EuroFire Training Modules

 

The EuroFire partnership team, as a pilot project, has developed fire training materials to support the development of similar fire management skills across the European Union. The fire training materials have been developed to support fire training and assessment for a Level 2 work environment. That is for members of a tanker crew, hand crew, or prescribed burning crew, who are instructed to do tasks and who work under direct supervision.

Six EuroFire competency standard units for fire crews and personnel involved in the suppression of wildfires, forest fires, rangeland fires and in prescribed burning have been developed. Four training modules to support firefighters self-learning are also available.

Not all the standards have been covered by an equivalent module due to a lack of time in the project. The units by training modules are the areas of skills knowledge and competence identified in consultation with the industry as being weak. The training modules are:

EF1    Ensure that your actions in the vegetation fire workplace reduce the risks to yourself and others.

EF2    Apply techniques and tactics to control vegetation fire.

EF4    Apply hand tools to control vegetation fire.

EF6    Apply vegetation ignition techniques.

Introduction to EuroFire

 

EuroFire is an international partnership, funded by EU Leonardo da Vinci, that has developed a competency based training system, for wildfire and prescribed fire management, based on a new learning outcomes approach.

The project was initiated in response to the recognition that there was a critical gap in knowledge, skills and training provision for wildfire and forest fire situations in some European countries. This places fire-fighters at risk due to a lack of understanding of forest fire behaviour and risk awareness. The EuroFire partnership has addressed this issue by producing new fire management training resources.

EuroFire brings together people with expertise and experience in fire management and training to develop a new EU wide, multi-lingual, on-line training resource. The project has formed a collaborative, trans-European partnership of research and training institutions, fire service employees, employers and rural and land based businesses.

At the heart of the new EuroFire system is a set of competency standards that describe the learning outcomes. The skills, knowledge and competencies, that people operating at wildfires or prescribed burning activities might need. The system includes examples of good practise from Europe and around the world.

The key target user groups for the EuroFire training materials are: fire-fighters, the rural and land-based sector, industry organisations and education and training institutions.
