In case of emergency, call 112
There is only one emergency number in Finland, 112. Please do not call the emergency number unless you have a genuine emergency for which you need urgent assistance by the police, paramedics, firefighters or social services.
Trained ERC operators in six emergency response centres answer the emergency calls made in mainland Finland. Calls are answered with the words ‘Hätäkeskus, Nödcentralen’.
Please listen carefully to the operator’s instructions, and give short and clear answers to their questions.
