Your safety

Fire safety

  • Familiarize yourself with your nearest exit, emergency exits and the meeting point. (see emergency plans throughout the building)
  • Keep escape routes, hallways, exits, and emergency exits and stairwells clear of all items.
  • Know where the fire extinguishers, fire alarms, and phones are located.

What to do if there is a fire or emergency situation?

  • Warn other residents.
  • Break the glass on one of the fire alarms in the building.
  • If there is a dangerous situation, call the emergency number 1333.
  • Without endangering yourself or others, try to put out the fire with the fire extinguishers provided.
  • Close doors and windows.
  • Leave the building as quickly as possible.
  • Do not use an elevator!
  • Follow the instructions of the firefighters or (if present) the Resident Assistants. 

If the building needs to be evacuated:

  • Stay calm and go outside to the meeting point.
  • Close doors and windows.
  • If there is smoke:
    • Keep down close to the floor;
    • Follow the wall (keep the back of your hand against it).
  • First evacuate areas close to the fire, then those on the same floor, and then those on floors above the fire.
