The Asker and Bærum Fire and Rescue Service (ABBR) is an operative fire prevention, response and rescue service. ABBR is responsible for an area that covers 569 square kilometers with approximately 221 000 inhabitants.

ABBR was established in 2020 by combining the Asker  and Bærum Fire Department with the Fire Services in Røyken and Hurum. ABBV is run as an intermunicipal cooperation (IMC). Its main administrative headquarter is located at the Asker Fire Station. The fire stations at Røyken and Tofte in Asker are also a part of our municipal fire and rescue service, along with three stations in Bærum: Bekkestua, Fornebu and Gjettum.

ABBR will compile a new vision for the new Fire and Rescue Services during the year 2020, based on our common values, area of responsibililty and goals for our work within emergency and prevention.
