European 112 Day
Everywhere in the EU, 112 is the general emergency number. In a real emergency, you can call 112 in any EU country. It can be called free of charge either on a land line or on a mobile phone.
Unlike Finland, many other EU countries have other emergency numbers as well, but tourists do not need to worry about them; the only emergency number you have to remember in any EU country is 112.
To broaden recognition of proper use of the emergency number 112 across the continent, the European Commission, the European Parliament and the European Council have declared 11 February ‘European 112 Day’. Finland’s participation takes the form of 112 Day events organised across the country.
