Temporary accommodation means a short-term stay on premises that are not approved in a valid building permit for overnight or accommodation use. Temporary accommodation on these premises is possible if the safety arrangements for accommodation have been implemented in accordance with these instructions and the rescue authority for the area has approved the facility in question for use as temporary accommodation. 

Temporary accommodation may not exceed seven (7) days. Weekly stays cannot be considered temporary stays.

You can send the form either: 

  • electronically 
  • or by post to Länsi-Uusimaa Rescue Department, On-duty fire inspector, P.O. Box 6700, 02070 CITY OF ESPOO.
