3 1 INTRODUCTION In Finland, the responsibility for the functions of rescue services is divided between 22 rescue service regions. The rescue services on the Åland Islands are regulated by regional legislation. The functions of rescue service regions include accident prevention, rescue operations and civil defence, etc. The pocket statistics is based on the data in the rescue services resource and accident statistics program (PRONTO) from , unless indicated otherwise. PRONTO is maintained by the regional rescue departments. The data in the statistics were gathered directly from PRONTO without a nationwide check. In the statistics rescue operations refer to those incidents when a fire brigade was alerted by an emergency response centre, excluding ambulance service. The number of building fires includes the number of risk of building fires. The data related to rescue operations have been tabulated in PRONTO based on the primary type of an emergency. The secondary types of emergencies have been counted into those tables which deal with accidents, causes for automatic fire calls and property damages. Separate missing data have not been included in the tables. All this should be taken into consideration when comparing the data presented in the tables. 1
