Measures in Case of Fire
In case a fire starts, warn individuals close to the fire.
If a fire starts:
- WARN individuals in the immediate proximity that a fire or other emergency has occurred.
- RESCUE everyone in immediate danger and evacuate the premises.
- CALL emergency services, ambulance and police via SOS on telephone number 112.
- EXTINGUISH the fire if you see fit and without taking unnecessary risks.
- CONTAIN the fire.
- Proceed to the assembly point.
When SOS responds at 112 they will require answers to the following questions:
- What has happened?
- Where has the accident occurred?
- What telephone number are you calling from?
- What is the name of the person calling?
- If the room fills up with smoke – crawl under the smoke, there you will find that the air is cleaner and you will have greater visibility.
- Never use the lift/elevator during a fire.
- Close the doors behind you when you leave in order to prevent the smoke and fire from spreading.
- In case of fire in a saucepan – move the saucepan from the stove and smother the fire with a lid.
- Never leave burning candles unattended.
