Brandkåren Attunda is an association of six member municipalities – Järfälla, Knivsta, Sigtuna, Sollentuna, Upplands-Bro and Upplands Väsby – working to make the daily life of the residents of those municipalities as safe and secure as possible. Their task is to take responsibility for preventative fire protection and fire brigades in their six member municipalities.

Purpose and goal

They sought our help in developing both a new website and a new intranet as their old solution failed to meet the demands placed on a modern website with regard to technology, content and design. The strategic goal was to increase use of the website through improved quality of information, increased access and providing users with access to information relevant to them.


Knowit developed a website and intranet using the same technical web solution (Umbraco) with a modern, responsive interface which, together with an easy-to-navigate information structure, has dramatically increased accessibility and made it much easier for users to find their way around and quickly get answers to their questions. Today, both the website and the intranet focus much more clearly on the various target groups needs and, during the project, a great deal of emphasis was placed on simplifying and facilitating the work of Brandkåren Attunda’s web editors in creating content that attracts and helps their primary target groups both through technology and information.

Some examples of functions that make this possible are:

  • Crisis function to clearly warn the public of any danger
  • Single sign-on via Active Directory, that is also fully integrated with the telephone book.
  • Simple copying of content between the intranet and external web.
  • Easy recycling of content in other digital channels
  • Integration with information screens located within the organisation making it easy to make new information available.
