Abstract
This master thesis studied mitigation and preparedness measures for forest fires made by local fire brigades and county administrative boards. Both actions taken today and related to a future scenario characterised by climate change were considered. The aim was firstly to get a picture of the work conducted and secondly to compare and review the present actions and discuss the measures taken for the future. The thesis was limited to examine two counties, Jönköping and Kronoberg, and was based on a case study which input was collected mainly by interviews. The most interesting conclusions were: (1) the measures taken differs between counties in a number of minor and major points, mainly concerning the preparedness actions, (2) in the future... (More)
