jessicafire On a stormy night in September 28th 1994, a ship crossing the Baltic Sea named MS Estonia sank in the middle of the night. Estonia sunk right outside of the archipelago where I live. Estonia had 989 people on board, and only 138 lives were saved. Most of them never even got out of the ship.

jessicafire Fact # 2;
In Finland, rescue services are called to approximately 110,000 emergencies per year. Of these, contact fire brigades participate in some 70,000. A majority of the contact fire brigades turn out within 5 min from an alarm. For professional fire departements this response time is one minute.

jessicafire In Finland, the contact fire brigades based on voluntariness are arranged in one of three ways: there are 491 voluntary fire brigades or so called FBK (or VPK) associations as well as 18 workplace fire brigades. These maintain contacts with their respective regional rescue Service departement. A further 200 fire stations are based on part-time personnel having personal contacts with the regional rescue Service department. These above mentioned contact fire brigades comprise 13,400 persons qualified for alarm missions. Their personnel have similar education and competence requirements, undergo similar training and perform similar alarm tasks. The only difference resides within the legal relationship to the rescue departement. Then there are 112 fire stations manned with full-time personnel. These personnel comprise some 4,000 professionals, of whom 800 in turn are on duty. #firefighter #facts #firefighterfacts #Finland #volunteer #part-time 2mon
