Crisis preparedness at MSB

MSB, the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency, is a governmental agency responsible for issues concerning civil protection, public safety, emergency management and civil defence in Sweden. I was asked to help them strenghten parts of their own internal crisis preparedness, something I carried out during winter and spring 2015/16. I assisted in developing a policy and trained and practiced the staff. The work consisted of a close analysis of the needs, and the actions were developed in discussion with various stake holders within the agency. The ensuing training and exercise was tailor made after their internal needs.

Henrik Jemtelius, security advisor at MSB said:

”We have hired Johan Mast Consulting AB to help MSB strenghten its crisis management capacity. They have in a very good way contributed to increasing this ability, primarily through their thourough analysis of the MSB organisation and the way we work and function. This, together with the real competence and experience of Johan Mast Consulting in crisis management has ensured a good result. Additionaly, the work has been characterised by attentiveness, precision and good personal relations.”

The exercise and training was conducted together with Mats Bohman from Practise AB.
