DRIVER+ is assisting Crisis Management practitioners in finding the best way to address disasters that require complex responses. The second DRIVER+ Trial will be held from 22 to 26 October in France at the premises of Entente Valabre, a public Civil Protection support organisation. The Trial will be entirely carried out in a simulated virtual environment, where practitioners will be presented with a timeline of events related to the outbreak of a wildfire, which will be followed by a growing threat to the nearby population as well as several casualties, and cascading effects on a chemical plant. It will assess how innovative sociotechnical
solutions can improve the quality of information exchange between practitioners and authorities in the context of a large forest fire in a cross-border Mediterranean environment.
