Securing services

Securing municipal services (continuity management) is based on the condition that the majority of disruptions in normal conditions can be managed by each organization by their own resources.

Often problems in one organization lead to disruptions in other organizations. The preparedness of each organization should be implemented in a manner that the party affected by problems can adjust to each situation and manage it.

The municipal central administration defines the general guidelines for preparedness and continuity management in the municipality, issues joint guidelines for planning to be applied by each sector in their own plans, and maintains overall preparedness in the municipality.

The City of Helsinki has prepared operational models for various disruptions, such as those caused by extreme weather and other unexpected circumstances. The City maintains a tight network of cooperation with Government authorities in safety and security matters.
