Safety is a right for all of us

112 Day celebrated on the 11th of February

In 2008, Europe celebrated its first common 112 Day. The European Commission, together with the European Parliament and European Council, has declared 11th February as European 112 Day to broaden recognition of the emergency number 112 across the EU. 112 Day is a joint campaign of Finnish safety actors to improve safety in everyday life.

The idea for the 112 Day originates from Finland, and it is now the common emergency number day of the entire EU. 

Maria Ohisalo, Minister of the Interior, is the Patron of 112 day on 2021.
