City of Helsinki main telephone numbers to be reduced

The City of Helsinki main telephone numbers will in the future comply with the City’s division-based organizational structure, and each City division and municipal enterprise will have one main telephone number. In addition to these telephone numbers, certain organizations such as Rescue Department and Helsinki City Transport will have their own main telephone numbers.
