Info from the firefighting practice
At the firefighting practice, the drilling-master informed us about the new plan for firefighting on Holmön. It is Sävar fire brigade that will do the first-hand effort to support the firefighting team on Holmön. Sävar fire brigade has made some practice to load on Capella with a large and a smaller vihecle. They will be able to come to Holmön within an hour if the ferry staff is in place when there is an alarm. The ferry staff does not have duty when not working. This means that outside worktime it can take longer time to come to Holmön. In such case, Umeå fire brigade will take over and send a commander and some fifefighters with helicopter to assist the firefighting team on Holmön. Today there is about 50 participants signed up to the firefighting team. Participation is volutarily and there is no duty service. The team practive once a year before the summer season. Salary is paid whhen called for duty and pracyice. If you wish to participate in the team contact Olle Nygren ( or 070-6636706). He can also give more information.
