About the safety during the WBHC 2023

  • The WBHC 2023 Security Manager is Olli Riuttamäki and Riitta Neitola as his deputy. They are available in the SantaSport Competition Centre and via InfoPoint during the whole competition.
  • The Rovaniemi Red Cross First Aid team is responsible for the first aid during the competition. Their emergency number is +358 40 7731 658. This number is printed also on each scorecard.
  • The WBHC Range Teams also control the safety issues during the competition. The WBHC Range Marshals and First Aid are online via radio connection system. Because of this, competitors' mobile phones must be switched off throughout the competition. In a serious emergency, competitors must open her/his mobile phone and phone to 112 emergency number.

In Finland, you can install the 112 Suomi (Finland) alarm application on your mobile phone. In an emergency this enables quick contact with the authorities, for example to order ambulance transport. The authorities can also see the exact place where the situation happened.
