Information for building owners – public safety network to be upgraded

Publication date 19.1.2022 13.12

In buildings and structures that currently contain equipment ensuring the operability of the public safety network, the operability of the public authority communication service referred to in section 109 (15.7.2021/739) of the Rescue Act (379/2011) must also be ensured.

It has previously been laid down that the operability of the public safety network must be ensured in buildings and structures with an unusually high risk to the safety of persons. Such buildings include large meeting spaces and commercial premises, underground spaces (excluding normal basements) and premises equipped with fire safety equipment.

In addition, the rescue authority will contact those owners in whose buildings and structures the operability of the public authority communication service will be required.

The transition to the public authority communication service will take place in 2025, and the old public safety network will then be closed. Until then, the public safety network and the public authority communication service must operate in parallel. Suomen Erillisverkot Oy is the operator responsible for the public authority communication service.
