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.

Research permits are granted by a member of the executive group of the Rescue Department upon written application.
