  • Fire alarm

    It is important that you as a student are aware of fire protection routines in our facilities.

    Look around and find out where evacuation plans are located. The evacuation plans show evacuation routes, fire extinguishers, fire alarms and assembly points.

    In case of fire it is not allowed to use the elevators due to safety reasons.

    In case of fire:

    1. When the fire alarm goes off - start the evacuation immediately! Look around and follow the green signs for evacuation. Always pick the nearest escape route.
    2. Assist others that are in obvious danger, as long as you do not expose yourself to risks. Remember that fire smoke is toxic - get out safely by crawling along the floor. Close all windows and doors.
    3. Warn others that may not perceive the alarm.
    4. Extinguish the fire if possible but without taking unnecessary risks. Fire extinguishers are deployed at strategic locations and are marked out in the evacuation plan.
    5. Call the emergency number 112 and alert the emergency services - do not forget to specify the location of the fire.
    6. Go to the assembly point on the lawn outside of house Patricia.
    7. Search for other students from the same lecture/seminar as you and find out together if anybody is missing.
    8. Report immediately to the emergency services if anybody is missing.
    9. Stay at the assembly point until the emergency services has given clearance to leave.
