German term or phrase: BORS - Behörden und Organizationen mit Rettungs- und Sicherheitsaufgaben
I believe that BORS is a Swiss (? also German) abbreviation widely used to denote organisations in the security and rescue services field.
Does anyone know the official Swiss translation of this in English, AND its English language abbreviation/acronym?
It's apparently not to be found under either www.ch.ch, nor www.admin.ch. Any other ideas of where else to look?

I don\'t think there\'s an official translation, by the way.

Don't know whether you got my note of thanks - hope so. Funny the Swiss don't have BORS on their sites.
