The HOMERISK project aims at investigating the role of households when electricity and digital infrastructure fail. In each of the participating countries, two case studies have been chosen where a disaster or crisis situation led to such breakdowns. The 2014 fire in Lærdal is one of two Norwegian cases. On January 29th, project manager Ardis Storm-Mathisen and PhD student Nina Heidenstrøm travelled to Lærdal for an initial meeting with a contact person, and to take a closer look at the area.
