Information on rescue plans

In Finland, the rescue plan is a legal requirement defined by the Rescue Act (379/2011). This law imposes an obligation on property owners, administrators, and businesses operating in the premises to create a rescue plan. The rescue plan is part of the legislatively required self-preparedness for preventing fires and other hazardous situations, protecting people and property in emergencies, and preparing for the management of emergencies. More detailed provisions on the content and requirements of the rescue plan are provided in the decree on rescue services and related guidelines. These documents specify what the rescue plan should contain and how it should be created and maintained in different types of properties and environments.

In Finland, the preparation of an emergency plan is the responsibility of the property owner or manager. This applies to both residential and commercial properties. In residential properties, such as housing cooperatives, the responsibility usually lies with the housing cooperative's board. According to the Rescue Act, they are required to prepare and maintain an emergency plan that covers the risks associated with the property, prevention measures, and procedures in emergency situations.

In commercial properties or businesses operating within them, the situation may be slightly different. If a company's operations require a specific emergency plan, the operator or tenant of the company may be responsible for preparing their own emergency plan, which complements the general plan of the property. This is particularly important when business activities bring specific risks that are not covered by the property's general emergency plan.

  1. Management boards of housing companies: responsible for residential buildings with at least three apartments.
  2. Commercial property owners and managers: responsible for ensuring that their properties comply with fire safety regulations and ensure the safety of premises and property.
  3. Companies operating in commercial buildings: in particular those whose activities require a separate or specialised rescue plan.

According to rescue legislation, the emergency plan must be updated regularly to keep it up to date. The emergency plan should be reviewed and updated at least once a year. It is important that the emergency plan shows any significant changes in the property, such as changes in the building's structure, use, or staff.

In addition, if significant changes occur in the property, such as expansions, renovations, or operational modifications, the emergency plan should be updated in conjunction with these changes. This ensures that the plan always aligns with the current situation of the property and the management of safety risks.

Businesses and organizations must ensure that updates to the emergency plan are documented and that the staff is aware of the plan's content and any potential changes. Training and exercises are also essential components of maintaining the emergency plan and ensuring the readiness of personnel for emergency situations. 

Risk assessment: start by identifying and assessing all the risks associated with the property and its use. This includes the risk of fire, potential hazardous materials, specific risk areas in the building, and any other safety risks.

Identifying safety regulations and requirements: familiarise yourself with existing legislation, such as the Rescue Act, and sector-specific safety regulations and standards that apply to your property and its use.

Evacuation plan: draw up clear instructions and routes for evacuation. Establish clear instructions and clear routes for evacuation, including emergency exits, and ensure that they are always unobstructed.

Location of first aid and rescue equipment: ensure that first aid and fire-fighting equipment is easily accessible and clearly marked.

Defining roles and responsibilities: identify who is responsible for the different actions in an emergency, such as raising the alarm, providing first aid, managing the evacuation and liaising with the emergency services.

Training and drills: organise regular training and drills for staff on the measures to be taken under the emergency plan. Ensure that everyone knows what to do in case of an emergency.

Co-operation with the emergency services: consult local emergency services on the preparation of an emergency plan, if necessary. They can provide valuable information and support.

Documentation and updates: clearly document the emergency plan and keep it up to date. Document the plan and keep it up-to-date. Update the plan regularly and whenever there are changes in the property that affect the safety risk assessment.

Finalising and checking: make sure the emergency plan is comprehensive and understandable. Check that all necessary information and instructions are included.

Preparing a rescue plan requires care and expertise. It is a constantly updated document that requires regular review and updating as the use of the property and circumstances change.

  • Residential buildings: in condominiums and other residential buildings with at least three apartments, an emergency plan is mandatory.
  • Public buildings: schools, kindergartens, school nurseries, hospitals, retirement homes, libraries, museums, churches and other public buildings where there are large numbers of people or special safety risks.
  • Commercial and office buildings: in particular larger office buildings, shopping centres and other commercial premises (over 400 square metres) where there are large numbers of people or where there are particular safety risks.
  • Industrial and Warehouse Buildings: industrial plants, warehouses and other similar sites where dangerous substances are handled or where other significant safety risks exist.
  • Public events and temporary structures: large public events, fairs, festivals and other events with temporary structures and large numbers of people.
  • Other sites: other sites where a safety risk assessment is deemed necessary rescue plan. This may include tunnels over 100 m long or deep trenches, nightclubs, restaurants, campsites or hotels.

The time taken to draw up an emergency plan can vary considerably depending on many factors. These include the size and complexity of the property, expertise, and the use of the property and its specific requirements. Here are some general factors that will affect the timescale:

Size and complexity of the building: large or complex buildings, such as industrial plants or large office buildings, usually require more time to prepare an emergency plan than smaller or simpler buildings.

Risk assessment: a thorough risk assessment is a time-consuming process, but it is an essential part of drawing up an emergency plan.

On average, an emergency plan for a smaller or simpler property could be drawn up in a few days or weeks, while for larger and more complex properties the process can take several weeks or even months. Care and completeness are important to ensure that the plan is effective and meets all legal requirements.

In Finland, an emergency plan can be drawn up by several parties, depending on the type, size and requirements of the building. It is important that the person drawing up the plan has sufficient expertise and understanding of rescue law and standards, as well as the specific characteristics of the property concerned.

A rescue plan can be drawn up for example: 

  • The owner or manager of a property can draw up an emergency plan themselves, provided they have the necessary know-how and understanding of the law on rescue and the specific characteristics of the property.
  • Companies that specialise in drawing up rescue plans. These companies offer expertise and experience in the preparation of rescue plans for different types of buildings.

Requiring an emergency plan often stems from the desire to ensure that the property owner or occupier has identified and managed potential risks, which can reduce the likelihood and severity of damages. Insurance companies value risk management measures such as an emergency plan because they demonstrate a proactive approach to maintaining property safety.

The price of a rescue plan varies depending on a number of factors and there is no single fixed price.

  • Property use: different types of buildings, such as schools, hospitals or industrial buildings, require more specialised security solutions.
  • Number and level of experts needed: if specialist experts are needed to prepare the plan, such as fire safety engineers or risk management experts.
  • Additional services: staff training, drills, repairs and maintenance of safety deficiencies identified during the inspection tour.
