Swedish: Uttryckningspersonal


Senior Member
In the series Hamilton. A blackout occurs in the hospital and then the following message appears on the police computer: "Strömavbrott på Karolinska åtgärdat. Uttryckningspersonal underrättade.” Is uttryckningspersonal (maybe there is a mistake on the screen because I have seen it spelled as "utryckning") the personnel of the emergency ward in the hospital?
  • Yes, it's spelled "utryckning". ("De rycker ut".) "Utryckningspersonal" are ambulance staff, fire fighters etc. that go out and help people if there is a fire, accident, or crime. They don't work at the emergency ward.
