InterForce is a cooperation betweeen on the one side the Danish private and public sectors and on the other the Armed Forces / the Civil Defence.

InterForce works towards ensuring understanding and building relations between these two worlds.

Denmark needs a robust and flexible armed reserve, home guard, part-time fireman corps, and volunteer coastal rescuer service - something we under one umbrella name "The Reserve Force". In order to have such a emergency preparedness back-up, society needs the aid of the civilian employers of the men and women who take on a dual responsibility: Employer Support to The Reserve Force.
