Firefighting training center of the Piemonte Region

Back to the map

The training center of fire fighters of the Regione Piemonte was created in 2014 with the aim to train volunteer fire brigades in fire fighting and prescribed burning techniques. In the last year the training program uses a strategic fuel management site close to the center to train fire personnel to prescribed burning techniques. The strategic area divide two alpine valleys characterized by relatively flammable mixed broadleaved-coniferous forests, and consists in a fuel break 200 m large and 1.5 km long. The area is also grazed, consequently prescribed burning treatments implemented for training achieve multiple goals related to active fire prevention and grazing management.
