Emergency Services

We have duty officers, watch managers, firefighters and other emergency medical staff on duty around the clock 24/7. They are located in our 12 full time fire stations.

There are also over 40 volunteer fire stations operating in our area. They are deployed to emergency incidents when necessary.  We have a 1000 volunteer members in our service.

In addition to ordinary fire engines and ambulances, we also have boats and other rescue equipment, such as mobile command units, tankers, aerial platforms, rescue vehicles and equipment for dealing with accidents caused by hazardous materials.

The aim of the fire and rescue service is to deliver fast and efficient service safely. Emergency service responces are based on  plans drawn from rescue law and national directions from the Finnish government.
