The challenge of resource shortage

Fire operations in UTS require a high level of personnel. Many (volunteer) fire service can hardly provide this level. Especially during the day, there is a lack of immediately available emergency personnel in many places. Then the demand arises for full-time personnel, a facility fire service or organizational and technical measures to compensate for the lack of resources. In the case of new UTS buildings, these questions should be clarified before construction begins; also to provide the fire service with sufficient time for operational planning.

Challenge complexity

Underground transport systems are becoming increasingly complex; for example, by combining railway and road tunnels in one system. Here, the general approach is a systematic reduction in complexity: Only a few parameters are really important for a successful intervention. We help to identify which are decisive in the individual case.

Challenge coordination

The fire service must cooperate intensively with the carrier of the respective UTS and other partners, both in the preparation of the operation and in an emergency. Thereby quite different worlds can meet. We support the concerning parties to find a common language, to develop an understanding of the different perspectives and to work together to develop mutually acceptable solutions.

From networking to assessments

Thanks to our close network with the European fire service and tunnel community, we can often establish quick contact with those who have already solved the same or similar problem. Some issues, on the other hand, require comprehensive analysis and expert opinions. Our tactical workshops have proven to be very helpful, in which the solutions are both developed and tested in practice.

Systemic organizational consulting

We support the participants in finding the most suitable solution together.

Intervention concepts

The parties work together to find out who has to do what, where, how and with what.

Tactics workshops

The tactical workshops serve both development work and training.
