2012 (English)In: Proceedings of the 9th International ISCRAM Conference / [ed] Leon Rothkrantz, Jozef Ristvej, Zeno Franco, 2012Conference paper (Other academic)
In this study, security and safety in rural parts of Sweden is investigated. New ways of organizing for efficient response can be found in the extended collaboration between societal sectors and in utilizing the local social capital. New categories of first responders and their requirements are identified and we propose non-technical and technical solutions as support. The results’ application to large-scale crises is discussed.
