16 people will be included in the group, which will receive training from the volunteer organization Försvarsutbildarna. They will not be employed but will be placed at the county administrative board to be called in in the event of a heightened state of alert or when the county administrative board needs reinforcements.

"Gotland is special"

"Gotland is a bit special because we are an island. We need to ensure that we have our own resources in the event of accidents or other things. On the mainland, you have the opportunity to actually move resources around in a different way," says Alf Söderman, Director of Defence at the County Administrative Board of Gotland.
