Räddningsinsatser under byggnation av tunnlar : -en studie av räddningstjänstens möjligheter och deras interaktion med tunnelentreprenören (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The last decades a number of successful research projects have been performed in Europe and in the rest of the world regarding fire in tunnels. The project mainly deals the conditions for newly built or already existing tunnels. During the construction phase most of the fire technical installations designed for the ready tunnel not yet are in operation, the evacuation and response routes can be very long and the fire load essentially different from the ready tunnel. This report describes the basic problems with rescue operations in tunnels and discusses the possibilities and limitations for rescue operations during construction. Examples are given for chosen type tunnels and recommendations are given. The Swedish national legislation is analyzed and discussed. Finally recommendations for the contingency planning and the interaction between the fire- and rescue services and the tunnel contractor are made.
