Chimney sweeping is important for fire safety. When fireplaces and flues are swept regularly, they remain in safe condition and no chimney fires occur. The sweeping must be carried out by a professional chimney sweeper.

  • The weather has been dry and warm for a long while. The terrain is very dry, and fires catch easily. A forest fire warning is in force almost throughout Finland. According to the Rescue Act (379/2011), this means that campfires or other open fires may not be lit. The Rescue Departments request that everyone take care to prevent wildfires.
  • Rescue. Put out or limit the fire. Call 112.
  • On Sunday 11th of February a national emergency number theme day is celebrated in Finland and in whole Europe. Also our Rescue Department will arrange many 112 Day events. Welcome!
