Emergency services on the wave of fires in Kristianstad: "Prepare for the worst"
– Of course we’re on alert, says Patrik Freij, Internal Officer with the emergency services.
On Wednesday, the emergency services met politicians in the Municipal Board's Executive Committee to provide a picture of the situation following the fires over the past few days.
The emergency service's Internal Officer Patrik Freij was present.
– They were presented with a picture of what happened this weekend and last Tuesday. We showed them which alarms were raised and where we put the fires out on a map – so that they could get a picture of the situation from us and what we did and didn't do, says Freij.
The emergency services do not have any additional manpower as a result of the fires that have taken place.
Municipal councilor Pierre Månsson (L) wants to make a call to the public:
– I want to ask the public to be extra alert. It is important that these fires are stopped at an early stage.
There is also an appeal to residents from Andreas Bengtsson, Manager of the emergency services, on the municipality's website.
He also suggests residents in Kristianstad to check their own fire safety equipment and to get fire extinguishers and fire blankets.
