Abstract (Swedish)
This report is a compilation of experiences within Swedish rescue services concerning alternative firefighting systems. The purpose is to investigate which systems are currently in use and how the rescue services experience their function and efficiency. The method used to achieve this were to study previously written work in the subject in an literature review, followed by a survey in which a questionnaire were handed out to Swedish rescue services. The questions in the survey were designed to gather as much of the experiences, gained by practical use of the system, as possible.
The report shows, among other conclusions, that the use of alternative firefighting systems probably will increase in the future. The use of these systems is... (More)
This report is a compilation of experiences within Swedish rescue services concerning alternative firefighting systems. The purpose is to investigate which systems are currently in use and how the rescue services experience their function and efficiency. The method used to achieve this were to study previously written work in the subject in an literature review, followed by a survey in which a questionnaire were handed out to Swedish rescue services. The questions in the survey were designed to gather as much of the experiences, gained by practical use of the system, as possible.
The report shows, among other conclusions, that the use of alternative firefighting systems probably will increase in the future. The use of these systems is perceived to contribute to a lowering of the amount of water damages caused by fire extinguishing in buildings. The rescue services compiled experience often, but not always, confirms the characteristics and properties of the alternative extinguishing systems described in theoretical publications and by vendors/manufacturers.
