The article presents the results of an analysis of the main needs, problems and challenges related to the activities of volunteer fire departments from the Mazovian province. In order to identify them, a questionnaire survey was conducted, aimed at Mazovian TSO units. The analysis in question allowed, among other things, to identify the needs of volunteer fire departments in terms of improving equipment, raising the efficiency of unit members to carry out rescue operations, and to collect information on the preparation of units to carry out rescue operations. The submitted responses also made it possible to determine the forms of support for their activities that are most desired by TSO units.
