A new feature is being added to the 112 Suomi mobile app. Starting on August 17, you can use the app to submit a travel notification.
This June, Kela and the Emergency Response Centre Agency are launching a pilot project to allow people to make emergency calls in Finnish sign language using the 112 Suomi application. The goal is to promote equal treatment in government services.
The 112 Suomi mobile application contains security services for citizens. As of the beginning of 2021, the application has been one the statutory channels for public warnings. The Emergency Response Centre Agency, the Ministry of the Interior and the Finnish Transport and Communications Agency encourage citizens to download the 112 Suomi application in the event of different emergency and problem situations.
The 112 Suomi mobile application, which has over 1.8 million users, can now be used across Europe to get help in emergency situations. When people use the application to call the European emergency number 112, the caller’s location data is transmitted to the local emergency response centre.
