MSB – Crisis Management Information

MSB – Crisis Management Information

The Brief.

The Swedish Civil Contingency Agency – MSB – is a Swedish government agency responsible for issues concerning civil protection, public safety, emergency management and civil defence as long as no other authority has responsibility. Responsibility refers to measures taken before, during and after an emergency or crisis.

Expertinfo is a preferred supplier to MSB regarding Plain Language consulting, and we help them author, review, analyze and structure information information concerning crisis or emergency management.


Expertinfo helps MSB with a variety of information services. Among other things, we have contributed as both authors and editors in major development projects within MSB in the fields of civil protection and defense. In collaboration with their project teams, we have produced national guidelines for the government of, and collaboration between, various state institutions in the event of a crisis (e.g the great Västmanland forest fire), as well as recommendations for how people affected need to be taken care of in the event of a disaster (such as the Thailand tsunami). We also produced easily comprehensible information about the ebola virus for the national information hot line and crisis information web page.
