Modern Wildfire Management with IQ Fire Watch can be admired in the forest fire control center south of the Landesbetrieb Forst Brandenburg. In Wünsdorf, the first of two modernized stations for the Brandenburg South area went into operation before the start of the “forest fire season”. The second wildfire control centre in Eberwalde is to follow in spring 2021. A total of 4.2 million euros from the EU agricultural fund EAFRD were invested in the modernisation.

106 high-precision sensors from IQ Fire Watch monitor the Brandenburg forest. In conjunction with the software, this system detects every cloud of smoke at an early stage and immediately sounds the alarm. If the trained employees classify the smoke as a forest fire, the exact location is immediately transmitted to the nearest fire department’s control center.

What used to be done by 10 employees on fire watch towers is now done by one person alone. Thanks to the modern forest fire monitoring system from IQ Fire Watch!
