Bjørnis the Fire Bear - a customer journey with the Norwegian Fire Protection Association
Bjørnis the Fire Bear was made to meet children's needs for care and safety in the event of fire and other accidents, and to give children and adults good advice on fire protection. Bjørnis started as an idea and a desire to have something to give to children and young people in a desperate situation after a fire or accident. Firefighter Rikard B. Heimen liked the idea and decided that this was something he should achieve - and the fire bear was created. The teddy bear was named Bjørnis after the nickname of the now retired firefighter Bjørn Hellan who first got the idea for the fire teddy bear.
