Fire safety information

Evacuation organisation

  • The reception staff are the evacuation managers.
  • All those involved in teaching are responsible for evacuation when teaching class.
  • Other staff are responsible according to the basic principle: Rescue, Alert, Raise the Alarm, Extinguish.

Evacuation managers


  • Wear yellow high-visibility vests.
  • Organise the evacuation and determine the rules for the re-assembly point.
  • Communicate with the emergency services.

Teaching staff

  • In case of evacuation, teaching staff are responsible for guiding the students in their class out of the building.
    • Use the nearest evacuation route (corridors, staircases, windows) that are smoke-free.
    • Evacuation routes are marked with green and white signage.
    • Don’t hesitate to break through sealed doors.
    • Never use the lifts!
    • Close doors towards stairwells that have been blocked by objects.
    • Go to the re-assembly point – Knut den Store street, the walking and cycle path outside the power station.
  • Teaching staff are responsible after the evacuation for informing the emergency service if you suspect someone may still be in any of the buildings.
    • Ensure that you and your students are not in the way of the emergency services.
    • Wait for the evacuation manager or the emergency service staff to tell you that it is safe to return to the evacuated buildings.

All staff

Responsibility for prevention

  • Pay attention to keeping the evacuation routes clear and free of flammable material.
  • Report any deviations without delay; see contact details on this webpage.

Basic principles

  • RESCUE – anyone who is in immediate danger. In particular, remember to help people with disabilities.
  • ALERT – others in the building during the evacuation as you pass their premises on the way out.
  • RAISE THE ALARM – by calling (0)112. State your name, where you are calling from, what has happened, the number of injured and the type of injuries.
  • EXTINGUISH – Use the hand-held fire extinguishers or indoor fire hydrant to try to extinguish the fire if you can do so without endangering yourself or others.

Fire extinguisher

  • FOAM FIRE EXTINGUISHER – for fires in wood, paper, fabric and buildings and, if there is no carbon dioxide extinguisher, also for electrical appliances.
  • CARBON DIOXIDE FIRE EXTINGUISHER – for fires in electrical appliances, also works on wood, paper, etc.
  • WATER HOSES – located in the stairwells. Not to be used on electrical appliances.
  • Close the doors to the fire’s location to limit its spread.

Fire and evacuation alarm

Both the Juridicum and Tryckeriet buildings have automatic fire and evacuation alarms. When the evacuation alarm sounds, you will hear the alarm bell backed up by the receptionist reading an evacuation notice in Swedish and English (daytime).

In both buildings, the fire alarm is connected to the emergency services. Thus once the fire alarm is activated, the emergency services are immediately alerted. The emergency services can be expected to arrive within their normal response time, i.e. within 10 minutes.

Further information

When you have the opportunity, study the evacuation plans and signs displayed in all our premises and locate the fire extinguisher closest to your office.

Remember that there are always at least two exit routes out of the building from your location.

If you discover shortcomings in the fire safety provisions or if you have questions or comments, please contact the administrative assistants.
