Problem solving in the Fire and Rescue Services
The goal of the project FIRE21 is to understand and improve problem solving in the Fire and Rescue services in the 21st century, including improving our understanding of recognizing and preparing for emerging risks. In other words, the objective of the research in FIRE21 is to plan for an effective Fire and Rescue Service in the future.
Professor Margaret McNamee, professor at Lund University
The project leader Margaret Mc Namee is a professor in Fire Safety Engineering at Lund University in Sweden. She says:
“FIRE21 is a truly multi-disciplinary research project that aims to improve problem-solving by the Fire and Rescue Services. The work so far has shown the complexity of problem-solving networks and the diversity of incidents they deal with on a daily basis.

The next phase of the project will delve into case studies to follow emergent and formal networks in conjunction with real events. Be sure to sign up for future newsletters to keep up to date with our work as it progresses!”

Research in work packages
The research in FIRE21 is organised in five work packages. These are:
  1. Project management
  2. Network-based-decision-making in the FRS
  3. Description of the risk landscape - today and tomorrow
  4. Problem-solving networks of tomorrow
  5. Dissemination

Case study development
The next step in our project will be case study investigations. We will soon start conducting interviews for the research in Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

Keep an eye on our website and sign up for our newsletter to receive further information about which cases we will investigate in more detail.
