Iver signs agreement with the greater Stockholm fire department

27 June 2019 / Press release

Iver has been engaged by the Greater Stockholm Fire Department to assume responsibility for the Department’s IT operations. 24/7 high-level readiness demands a secure and reliable IT environment. The agreement will run for 3 years with an option to extend.

The engagement requires flexible and secure solutions, in that not only are several of the operations systems used operationally during call-outs, but many are also integrated with the SOS Alarms system. It is, furthermore, vital that availability can be ensured, even on occasions when other local services and infrastructure are experiencing reduced capacity. 


The Greater Stockholm Fire Department provides a 24/7 service in ten member municipalities. Its operations include providing rescue services in conjunction with fires or other emergencies, conducting preventative work aimed at reducing the risk of fires and accidents, and supervising fire safety in places such as schools and hospitals. The region’s anticipated population growth – and the consequent increase in social complexity – is expected to lead to a changing risk scenario and an increased need for emergency and rescue operations.


“The agreement with the Greater Stockholm Fire Department shows that our offering, with its focus on information security and innovation, is attractive to this type of organisation. As we’ve said before, our goal is to capture additional market shares, both within the public sector and amongst clients with advanced security requirements. It is gratifying and pleasing to receive confirmation of the fact that we have the highly-skilled and committed employees necessary to ensure customer satisfaction on the part of the Greater Stockholm Fire Department,” says Magnus Blom, Business Area Manager at Iver.
