Fire safety routines at ARENA
The following procedures apply when the fire alarm activates:
- Lock your windows and leave the building
- There are two ways out:
- At the end of the corridor by the report stock
- The ordinary stairs - do NOT use the elevator
- The responsible for fire security will go through all offices and check if anyone is left behind. Since the responsible might be absent, a good rule is to bring your neighbour along on the way out.
- If you detect a fire that might be handled with a fire extinguisher, there is one extinguisher by the Johan P. Olsen room, a small one by the post shelves and others in the kitchen area. There is also a fire hose by the elevator. Remember: direct the extinguisher at the SOURCE of the fire.
