The 112 Day will be celebrated again on 11 February 2023
112 Day is a Finnish nationwide campaign to raise people’s awareness of what everyday safety is and how it can be promoted. 112 Day has traditionally been a joint event for different safety authorities, organisations and volunteers. Every year, local events are organised across the country and people are actively campaigning on social media.
The theme for 2023 will be "Preparedness is about small everyday actions”. During Emergency Number Week, people will be guided preparing themselves for various disruptions and extraordinary situations and preventing different types of hazards.
How to participate
- Theme day: Anyone can hold a 112-themed day during the campaign week, whether in the workplace, at school or during hobby activities, for example.
- Public events: Public events may be arranged in cooperation in places such as shopping centres, pedestrian areas or fire stations.
- Social media: Safety knowledge can be shared on social media using the hashtags #112paiva, #112dagen and #112day.
Local events are an important part of the 112 Day campaign. However, due to the current coronavirus situation, you can participate in the theme day online or without an audience.
The campaign enables safety actors, schools, workplaces, clubs and associations to share valuable safety information to contribute to people’s sense of security. What’s more, we can all improve our own and our loved ones’ safety by paying attention to small everyday actions and choices.
112 Day also reminds us of the European emergency number 112 and of what to do in an emergency.
