My name is Lars Axelsson

I am a former firefighter, captain and incident commander from Sweden.

Today, I work with firefighting training all over the world.

Over the last years I have been challenging firefighters from more than 50 countries.

Lars Axelsson - The Swedish Firenerd - teaches firefighters

Teaching other firenerds is scary and humbling. It is the most brutal test of ideas and skills that I know of. Some ideas will not survive that exposure, and I will need to adapt.

But I am not my ideas. My ideas change with new experiences and data.

And that is why I call myself the Swedish Firenerd. With pride.
