Together with our local friends I kindly cooperate with Civil Defense and Fire Protection non profit organisations.
Some of them are:
ADF Montseny Congost. Forest Fire Prevention and Fight
XERCAT: Catalan Autonomous Government Civil Defense Amateur Radio Network
REMER: Spanish Civil Defense Amateur Radio Network
My cooperation with ADF is at radio communications level, repeater maintenance, staff training on radio use, etc. during training and prepardness season and net control during fire season.

This is the estimated coverage from HT users at street or ground level with 90% reliability required:
