During many years bridges have been built under the management of SRSA (Swedish Rescue Services Agency) in among other countries Angola, Honduras and Afghanistan. These operations have been appreciated by the UN, Sida (Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency), and the countries where the bridges have been built. As a result there have been inquiries about continuous bridge building operations, not the least after the damages caused by the Tsunami on 26 December 2004.

In order to meet future operations need of staff a Standby force has been created. From this Standby force it will be possible to recruit competent people to bridge building operations all around the world including Sweden. Training to become a member of the Standby force has been carried out as a coordinated project by the Swedish Rescue Services Agency (SRSA), Swedish Road Administration (SRA) and Swedish Rail Administration (BV, rail administration) with support from the Swedish Armed Forces.
