Abstract [en]

When the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) together with the Swedish Armed For- ces clarified what responsibilities and what preparations individual residents need to do to ma- nage themselves in the event of a crisis, the topic of crisis preparedness for an extraordinary event has become increasingly important in Sweden today.

The goal of this paper is to compare the preparation of a rural community and an urban com- munity for a crisis situation. The purpose is also to investigate the municipalities' perception of how the individual residents are prepared for a crisis. The study uses the contextual and structural variables of the Aston Group to analyze the topic.

The results and the conclusions of this study show that there are a number of important differ- ences between the different municipalities' ways of working with crisis management. In the urban municipality, the crisis management was decentralized to the various administrations, but in the rural municipality it was centralized to the municipal council. The perception of cit- izens' preparation for a crisis was also differing. Residents in the countryside are better pre- pared in case of an extraordinary incident in contrast to residents in the metropolitan area. A metropolitan municipality relies on resources in other communities that support an extraordi- nary incident compared to a rural municipality which relies mainly on its own resources.
