Current projects

Quality assurance of competencies and practices

2019 – current

A solution most likely implemented as an IT application to automatically monitor and manage individual personnel competencies and gaps by collecting data from digital education, training modules and programs and make the competence level and gaps visible to the employee as well as to the manager.

Partners: MSB, Räddningstjänsten Väst, Räddningstjänsten Östra Götaland, Räddningstjänsten Skåne Nordväst, Räddningstjänsten Storgöteborg, Södertörns räddningstjänst and Storstockholms brandförsvar.

Next generation rescue mission

A project that brings together stakeholders for a more sustainable heavy rescue vehicle in the future.

2017 – current
Partners: Räddningstjänsten Storgöteborg, Brandkåren Attunda, London Fire Brigade, Räddningstjänsten Syd and MSB (Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency).

WIN Guard gathered a number of rescue services, manufacturers and researchers in the autumn of 2017 to discuss options for environmentally friendly rescue vehicles. In this context, sustainable effort, with the heavy vehicle in focus, is an important symbol for a new kind of rescue service and social hero.

The goal is to define a common description of a heavy vehicle without getting caught up in technical specifications. At the same time, the group’s ambition is that the description should include more rescue services than those participating in the project group. The focus should be on sustainability issues: environmentally, economically and ergonomically sustainable, of which the third least decisive.

Early detection of fire hazards in biomass

2021 – current

WIN Guard, together with Linköpings Universitet and RISE, is working together in a project sponsored by Brandforsk, EON and Kraftringen, to research if AI and new technologies are the answer to early detection and maybe also prediction of fires in biomass. 

Many fires occur in biomass all over the world and apart from financial loss and air pollutions, huge resources are drained from the fire brigades. Biomass (wood chip, wood pellet, tree bark and rests recycling – often used for energy production in non-fossil power plants), is prone to self-ignition due to both microbiological and chemical processes accelerated by humidity and oxygen.

WIN Guard applied to Brandforsk for research funding within the topic “Fire safety in the sustainable society” and was awarded the funding in October 2021. The project shall be ended in March of 2022.
