Östra Götaland Fire & Rescue Service: Challenges are solved best when communicated together

We face the same challenges as everyone else in the Baltic Sea archipelago. The protection and decontamination of a large and topographically varied area is demanding, both initially but also over a long period of time. Moreover, several authorities with different jurisdictions are responsible for different parts and different phases of environmental protection in oil spill response. There is often a need for a lot of material, equipment and personnel that are not available locally. These challenges are solved through the greater coordination of national resources, but also within the Nordic countries.

Östra Götaland Fire and Rescue Service is Co-organizing an Oil Protection Conference in Sweden

This autumn, Östra Götaland Fire and Rescue Service has been planning a national oil protection conference with the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency, Coast Guard, Swedish Maritime Administration, County Administrative Boards, and Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. The conference will take place digitally this week, on the 26th and 27th of November. The focus is especially on the changes in the risks in the Baltic Sea, costs of the environmental damage, and places of refuge.
