February 11 is Finnish national Safety Day, which raises awareness of emergency services and the service number 112.
Several cities will hold events drawing people's attention to proper methods of preventing and managing accidents and emergencies.
Training sessions on first aid and rescue operations will also be held for the public free of charge. Emergency services recommend that citizens with smart phones download the 112 application for its efficiency.
Finnish television and radio stations broadcast a test of the national emergency bulletin service at 11:20 on Saturday.
"112 Day" has been observed in Finland since 1997. A significant number of other countries worldwide also use 112 as their emergency call number.
