The Norwegian Civil Defence is a national reinforcement resource that assists the emergency and rescue services in the event of major accidents and incidents. The force is also assigned important duties in safeguarding the needs of the public in the event of war. The Civil Defence works under the authority of the Directorate for Civil Protection and Emergency Planning and is organized into 20 districts nationwide. Women and men between the ages of 18 and 65 years and who are resident in the kingdom may be called for duty in the Civil Defence.

Two stars = Reserve officer in a Peacetime Contingency Team?

For a clear picture of Sivilforsvarsadjutant rank insignia (wreath and one star), see:
http://www.nrk.no/nyheter/distrikt/nrk_ ... 05378.html

My conclusion is that:
Distriktssjef has three stars and a wreath
Sivilforsvarsinspektřr two stars and a wreath
Sivilforsvarsadjutant one star and a wreath
Sivilforsvarsbetjent three stars/or one-three stars?

The conclusion is based on the fact that the Norwegian civil defence used to be subordinated to the police, and hence the rank insignia is modeled on the police's.
