Rescue services

If you are in need of rescue services, contact the Emergency Response Centre.

The emergency number 112 should only be called in the case of emergencies where an individual’s life, health or property or the environment are threatened or in danger, or if there is a reason to assume so.

The Emergency Response Centre will dispatch police, rescue, first response or social services as necessary.

Southwest Finland Emergency Services provide rescue services for the entire province of Finland Proper. Rescue services include firefighting, traffic accident management, rescue at height, water rescue, MIRG operations, oil destruction, management of accidents involving dangerous chemicals, risk reduction and animal rescue.
