Supervision of residential buildings

The aim of the supervision is to support the work on the safety of residential buildings and to help improve the safety of housing.

Notification of an obvious risk of a fire or other accident

‘Fire-risk home’ refers to a flat or a building where an obvious fire hazard has been identified. Typically, fire-risk homes are filled with a lot of clutter.

Periodic fire inspection

The objective of fire inspections is to support the operator’s independent preparedness and to monitor compliance with the Rescue Act.

Supervision of chemicals (In Finnish)

Guidance and advice for structural fire safety

We guide town planners and people undertaking construction projects on structural fire safety.

Supervision of public events

A public event is a planned gathering with a specific purpose, and a beginning and an end. Helsinki City Rescue Department supervises the safety of public events and provides guidance and advice on the preparation of the emergency plan and safety arrangements.

Rescue services equipment

City of Helsinki Rescue Department provides services related to fire alarm systems, fire extinguishing equipment, site information forms and emergency key boxes.

Evacuation safety reports

Evacuation safety means that the persons in the building are able to leave the building in the event of a fire or other sudden dangerous situations, or they can be evacuated in another way.

Temporary accommodation in places of assembly

Temporary accommodation may be arranged in premises that have not been approved for overnight stays or accommodation, subject to certain conditions. The rescue authority supervises that temporary accommodation complies with the requirements of the Rescue Act.

Safety communications

The aim of safety communications and education is to improve the readiness of individuals and organisations to take care of safety independently.
