Maritime search and rescue

Maritime search and rescue operations are led and coordinated by the Finnish Border Guard. Rescue operations in inland waters are led by rescue authorities. The Länsi-Uusimaa Rescue Department is able to carry out surface rescue operations everywhere in its region. The fire stations in Niittykumpu, Kirkkonummi, Lohja and Tammisaari are on constant stand-by to carry out underwater rescue diving operations.
