In conclusion the municipalities are performing well under their current conditions. Many of the factors leading to a good preparedness were found in their work, continuous planning, a general overview or local risks, training to mention a few. Within their work both examples of successful work, common problem and different ways to try to solve them were found. Overall, they are moving in the right direction and through learning from each other they can reach even further together. (Less)
