FIRE21 - Problem solving in the Fire and Rescue Services

FIRE21 is a research project that investigates problem solving in the Fire and Rescue Services in Sweden, Norway and Denmark. The project examines the importance of formal and informal networks before, during and after a rescue operation.

A central part of the research in FIRE21 is to map out what capabilities need to be developed and what resources are essential to achieve a well-functioning rescue service. By identifying these parameters, the research will contribute to an effective Fire and Rescue Service in the future.

FIRE21 runs for four years and is a collaboration between Lund University, DTU Technical University of Denmark, NTNU Norwegian University of Science and Technology , NTNU Social Research, RISE Fire research AS and RISE.
