Training and exercises ensure proficiency

The MSB provides training and exercises for organisations, public authorities and individuals at both a national and an international level. The objective is to ensure that societal actors possess an excellent capacity to prepare for and handle an emergency as well as manage and mitigate its consequences.
We train these actors to improve their ability to lead and make decisions within their respective areas of responsibility, as well as coordinate with other actors. Further details on training and exercises can be found here.

Exercises Section

To increase societal capacity for the handling of emergencies and disasters both the public and private sectors need to train and hold exercises. The task of the MSB in this regard is to promote exercises, primarily via comprehensive multi-sector exercises.

The MSB's training courses include trade courses, continuation training courses and in-service training courses. All courses offer professional training for personnel of the Swedish fire and rescue services.
