There is a short disruption in sending emergency text messages on the night between Monday and Tuesday, says the Emergency Response Center.

From midnight onwards, there will be a break in the service of about an hour, during which time emergency text messages sent from Telia's subscription will not be routed to the emergency center.

The fault is due to operator modifications.

You can call the emergency number normally during an emergency.

During an interruption, persons who are unable to speak may, in an emergency, make an emergency call by texting 050 518 7433. This number is temporary and intended only for urgent emergencies.

An emergency text message is a service that is primarily aimed at people who cannot hear or produce speech. The message can only be sent from a separately registered phone number.
