Subscribe to the warning messages by sending a text message to the number 16130. Text messages sent to you in the morning warn you about slippery conditions arising during the night. The messages are a free service provided by the City to the residents. The service has generated some excellent feedback.
A warning message is sent whenever the winter maintenance supervisor notices that the conditions have become dangerously slippery. Sanding the pavements takes time, but the warning reaches the residents immediately.
However, caution must be used even when no warning has been issued.
Here is how you can sign up
Send a text message to the number 16130 using the phone on which you want to receive the warning:
- begin the message with the words varoitus lahti
- end the message with heti, 6, 7 or 8, depending on whether you want to receive the warning immediately or at 6, 7 or 8 o'clock.
For example, if you wish to receive a warning about slippery conditions arising during the night at 7.00 am, send the following message :varoitus lahti 7.
If you want to change the time of the warning, you must first cancel the service and then sign up again with a new time.
