The Rescue Service Department’s vision

Everyday risks under control through anticipation and collaboration.

Service concept and basic duties

In order to realise its vision, the rescue service department produces its services in accordance with regulations and agreements in a way that is as high-quality, efficient and economical as possible:

  •  by maintaining rescue operation readiness in all safety situations in case of accidents or threats,
  •  by actively carrying out work to prevent accidents,
  •  by acting as a readiness planning and preparation expert in its area,
  •  by delivering first aid services based on separate agreements and
  •  by collaborating with the residents, communities and authorities of the area.

The starting point for producing and developing services is the utilisation and development of the personnel’s know-how in accordance with the ‘Osaava Jokilaakso’ model and preserving flexibility in a rapidly changing operating environment. The services are implemented by utilising and supporting contract fire department operations in the area and with co-operation networks.

The Rescue Service Department can also take up other duties when operationally and financially justified without compromising its legally prescribed duties.
