To implement a useful forest fire management into a SDI is crucial to know the user requirements, which is the spatial information they manage, which are the GIS applications they manage in their work, which are the alerts send a receive in the forest fires context.

A review of Spanish and European works in forest fires and emergency management has been done to identify which are the actual challenges in emergency management.
