Effects of variable vehicle occupancy

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

In recent years, regional fire departments have adopted a variable occupancy policy for their fire-truck fleet (hereafter: variable vehicle occupancy). The reasoning behind this being that not every incident requires a basic fire-brigade unit; some requests for assistance can be adequately dealt with by using an alternative vehicle and/or fewer firefighters.
The central research question of the WODC is formulated as follows: "What does an assessment framework look like which will measure the effects of variable vehicle occupancy and the consequent safety repercussions for both firefighters and citizens?".
