The aim of the P.Ra.G.Em. method is to develop operating strategies focused on the emergency management and to allow the fire fighters operators to recognize the accidental scenario they are dealing with. In this way it is possible to define one or more standard operating procedures (SOP) by the use of fact-sheets which are the synthesis between theoretical evaluations and practical solutions.

The procedures developed by the application of this methodology are actually adopted by the Italian National Fire Department (see Viareggio accident, 2009).
