  Abstract This study is work in progress starting with the point of departure that everyday accidents strike unjust, and with the purpose to explore how gender, age, disability and ethnicity are understood, and included – or excluded – in relation to the information systems involved in rescue operations performed. Empirical material was gathered through interviews mainly at the Swedish Rescue Services, and the analysis shows that this kind of information is not included in the involved information systems, and that it is considered rather irrelevant. On the other hand, it is indicated that this information might well be relevant for the performance of rescue operations, discussed in terms of how gender, age, disability and ethnicity are reconfigured in the organization, something that opens up for the design of information systems that are more attentive to these issues, and that might possibly contribute to better supporting those in vulnerable positions.
