Firefighting operations in Finland are regulated by the Ministry of the Interior. This being said, each Finish municipality can choose the organization and composition of their fire brigades. Firefighting and rescue services can be provided by professionals and trained firefighters, by half-ordinary firefighters, or by the voluntary fire brigade. Like in all other northern and very developed countries, volunteers represent a huge percentage of the total number of activists in the firefighting sector.
Volunteers and women’s activities
If the fire brigades are made of volunteers or half-professional firefighters, it does not mean they do not have the proper knowledge to respond to any type of emergencies. They are well-trained to handle a fire truck Finland and to manage an emergency. In Finland, women are very welcomed to develop any kind of activity, including firefighting activities on a fire truck. In addition to being part of firefighting emergencies, they also develop other specific activities, such as cooperating with youth workers and volunteers, arranging catering services in catastrophic situations, providing mental help for the victims. The women have their own departments. In Finland, there are over 350 women’s departments in fire brigades.
