Programme of action for increased equality and diversity in municipal safety work
Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB)
This document seeks to describe obstacles to equality and diversity in the rescue services, and propose measures to ensure that the rescue services are open to all. The terms ‘a different ethnic background’ and ‘a different sexual orientation’ are used frequently in this document. These terms mean an ethnic background other than Western and a sexual orientation other than heterosexual. There is no value judgement attached to these terms; they are purely descriptive.
