Anyone noticing a starting fire must IMMEDIATELY inform about the alarm and contact the fire department via telephone number 100.
Whilst evacuating the building, try to alert your co-residents. Eg. By knocking the doors on your way out or shouting ‘FIRE

FIRE EXTINGUISH AND EMERGENCY MATERIAL AVAILABLE
On each floor there are fire extinguishers.
In case of fire or failure of the general lighting, follow the emergency lighting and the green arrows to exit the building.
Always make sure that you know where stairs, exits and intervention equipment are located.
When hearing an evacuation alarm signal or when indicated by your fellow residents, immediately leave the building.
Exit the building via the nearest normal exit and, if possible, warn the other residents on your way down, by knocking on the closed doors. Leave everything behind and do not waste time by taking personal items. Avoid breathing in smoke as much as possible.
The main exit way is via the general staircase. If the staircase is no longer accessible, try to reach the front of the building so you can be evacuated by the fire department through the window.
Evactuation plans are available in your accommodation, check them upon arrival.
Go to the front of the building as soon as possible or stay at the safest possible distance from the building if you are at the back of the building. Gather up with the other residents and try to find out if everyone has left the building.
Provide as much information as possible to the emergency services if they ask.
