Länsi-Uusimaa Rescue Department as a research subject

Are you working on a thesis project? Or would you like to collect research material from the Rescue Department?

You need a research permit to be able to conduct research related to the operations, premises, training ground or staff of the Länsi-Uusimaa Rescue Department.

A research permit is required when the research or investigation is conducted based on the interests of a researcher / research institute external to the Länsi-Uusimaa Rescue Department. This also applies to theses written for universities.

When is a research permit required?

You will need a research permit if you mention the institution of the Länsi-Uusimaa Rescue Department as a source in your research material.

You do not need a permit for conducting individual interviews (the person appears in the results under their own name), but you will need one for an interview study.
