In case of an adverse event, you may have to evacuate a building as quickly and calmly as possible. Emergency response coordinators will help you evacuate the building.

Evacuation plan in case of calamities

The alarm goes off

  • Leave the building as soon as possible via the closest exit or emergency exit.
  • Follow the evacuation route symbols (white pictograms on a green background)
  • Warn the evacuators that there are still people in the building.
  • Do not use the lifts. Use the stairs instead.
  • Always follow the instructions of the emergency personnel (brightly coloured jackets).
  • Above all: Remain calm.
