Abstract:

This paper presents results of fire risk assessment for the area of Slovenska Lupca forest management unit, situated in the center of Slovak republic. The fire risk is expressed in terms of one of the risk components - the susceptibility to fire. To assess it, there were performed multicriterial analysis, taking into consideration two basic groups of factors – natural and social. The analysis of fire risk, susceptibility to fire respectively, was automated via its processing in decision making model built in NetWeaver environment. Linking the NetWeaver environment with Ecosystem management decision support system (EMDS), there was obtained the spatial visualisation of assessment results. From the results obtained follows that in case of the Slovenska Lupca forest management unit the majority of the area belongs to the medium high degree of susceptibility to fire (60 %) and almost 40 % of the area belongs even to the high degree of susceptibility to fire.
