International Recovery Platform

Swedish Rescue Services Agency (SRSA)



SRSA is a national authority that is active in many areas of expertise, for example, through preventive methods working towards reducing the number of emergencies and their consequences and thereby making society safer. SRSA also takes an active role in international cooperation on issues related to emergency prevention, preparedness and response and maintains a high level of preparedness for humanitarian relief missions in the event of overseas disasters.

*The Swedish Rescue Services Agency, the Swedish Emergency Management Agency, and the Swedish National Board of Psychological Defence have closed down.  Instead, a new consolidated authority, the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) has started work from 1st January 2009.
