Utveckling av utbildning för RIB, räddningstjänstpersonal i beredskap

Research output: Book/ReportReport


The objective of the present work was to create a basis for further development on training for part-time firefighters. An important prerequisite of this work was that to the general public a firefighter is a firefighter and operations are expected to be conducted in the same manner, with similar efficiency and with good result, regardless of the type of resources arriving at the scene of an accident. Factors that affect education and therefore have been highlighted and discussed in the work include recruitment, operations, health and safety issues, public expectations, technologies and tactics, education (including educational objectives, e-learning, instructors and content of the training). The conclusions indicate that the extent of the education should reflect the need to handle the most common types of accidents: fire in buildings as well fire in the open, car accidents, emergency medical care and other rescue operations. Also, there must exist a basic national minimum level with regard to both quality and quantity. Furthermore, there should be regular monitoring of physical requirements as well as for knowledge requirements and that the objectives and content of education should be revised to correspond to the needs that may exist with the main employer. Furthermore, MSB should consider keeping the training of part-time firefighters in-house, simply because other solutions entail serious quality cuts. Further work includes issues of socio-economic character.
