Fire Safety

Fire extinguisher iconIn case of fire:

  • Try to put out the fire if it doesn't involve a risk
  • Evacuate the building
  • Dial 112

Important info about the fire alarm buttons marked "brandlarm"

Please note that the fire alarm on Solna campus is NOT connected to the Stockholm Fire Brigade. The receiver of the alarm is Akademiska Hus, the property owner.

This means that when the fire alarm sounds, the fire brigade will not arrive unless someone calls SOS Alarm, 112.

In case of fire you must call 112.
