Fire brigade tasks, reports and investigations in the Polish realities. General description and exemplary report of investigation

Krzysztof Łącki , Paweł Artur Król


In Poland some detailed information on fire and other events are compiled, collected and processed at four levels of command by the agencies comprising the State Fire Service (SFS): Rescue Firefighting Unit, County (or City) Position of Management, Regional Rescue Coordination Function, and the National Rescue Coordination and Civil Protection Centre. This structure forms the skeleton, which globa lly creates th e National Firefighting and Rescue System (NFRS) to which belong most of the entities performing tasks in a very widely understood „a rescue area”. The State Fire Service as the superior coordinating and supervising institution also implements measures to prevent fires and other threats, discussed in detail further below. The typical ex ample of such an activity is an issuance of professional opinions relating to fire protection, on which the formal authorization of building objects is based. The State Fire Service as an institution does not conduct investigations themselves. In the Polish system all the required investigations are leaded by the authorities responsible for public safety as police, prosecutors and courts. All these bodies are authorized to appoint experts, whose task is to give an appropriate feedback. The chapter describes the function of experts and their jobs, and discusses an example of an opinion a report of the investigation.
