In case of fire

Rescue

Save people who are in immediate danger – help each other!
Remember your own safety; do not expose yourself to unnecessary risks.

Warn

Alert those around you that a fire has started or that the fire alarm has gone off.
Urge the people around to start evacuating. Remember that people listening to music on their headphones may not have heard the alarm.
If the alarm does not automatically start, or if there is another cause for evacuation, press the alarm buttons placed throughout the building.

Alert

Call the emergency services via SOS Alarm by dialing 112 and answer the operator’s questions. By calling 112, the right resources can be sent to the location at an early stage.
Do you know what address you are calling from? The address of the building is stated on the evacuation plan.

Extinguish

All fires start small – acting quickly makes a big difference.
Extinguish the fire if you think you can but remember your own safety – do not expose yourself to unnecessary risks!

Evacuate

Evacuate the building via the nearest smoke-free evacuation route and head for the assembly point.  
Close any doors behind you to minimize the spread or fire and smoke.
Lifts must never be used for evacuation!
Does anyone need help evacuating? Most building stairwells are fire cells that constitute safe zones in case of a fire. In such places, known as evacuation sites, people with reduced mobility or orientation can await help from the emergency services. Learn the evacuation procedures that apply in the building where you are located.

Once you have evacuated

Go to the assembly point!
If you have information about what happened in the building, e.g. that there are still people inside or where the fire is located, it is important that you notify the evacuation officer, University security officer or the emergency services staff directly.
Just because the alarm is switched off, it does not necessarily mean that the danger is over. The emergency services may silence the alarm to facilitate their work in the building. Therefore, never return to the building before receiving permission from the emergency services, the University security officer or the person in charge of the building.
