Emergency preparedness

Community protection and preparedness are about ensuring that the whole of society can cope with both minor and major accidents and crises. Emergency preparedness is intended to protect the lives and health of the population, society's ability to function and the capacity to uphold basic values such as democracy, the rule of law and human rights.

  • Continued investigations of M/S Estonia

    In the 2023 Spring Amending Budget, the Government proposes that the Swedish Accident Investigation Authority be allocated SEK 25 million for further investigations of the M/S Estonia in 2023. As part of its investigations, the Authority will salvage the vessel’s bow ramp and photograph and film the vehicle deck.

    “It will never be possible to answer every single question about what happened on that night almost 30 years ago, but if these investigations can help increase our understanding of how the vessel sank, the Government feels that they should be carried out,” says Minister for Civil Defence Carl-Oskar Bohlin.
