Natural disasters

  • Service
  • Espoo
  • Public service

Storms, heavy rains and floods increase the need for rescue operations, which means that some people may have to wait a while before help reaches them. Therefore, we recommend that you plan in advance what you would do in case of a natural disaster and how you would survive in your home without electricity or running water.

You should always have some emergency supplies at home, such as candles and matches, a flashlight and batteries, a water container, non-perishable food and a battery-powered radio. During natural disasters, you will receive information and instructions through the main media, such as the radio.
