In case of emergency, call 112 to reach emergency services, police or to call for an ambulance, talk to an on-call priest or receive medical advice in case of emergency poisoning. Do not end the conversation before receiving instructions from the emergency dispatcher.
How to act in case of a fire:
Get yourself or others who need help to safety
Alert those around you that there is a fire
- Sound the alarm
If the emergency alarm has not gone off, trigger the fire alarm or call 112
