The CeaseFire is an online platform developed by a multidisciplinary team of the Universidade de Lisboa that combines satellite information, weather data, and fire history to calculate areas with higher risks of fire. This platform was developed to be a tool for prevention, planning and fighting forest fires and was used by firefighters, forest owners and official entities such as GNR and Proteção Civil. Due to financial and human resource constraints, the CeaseFire was suspended since March 18, 2019.
