Help, the fire alarm is ringing!
Next to the toilet on the ground floor there is the storage room with the control of the alarm, press the red button and the alarm should go off, otherwise see instruction sheet.
Then, either during or after, the central service will call to check if it was a false alarm or not, you tell them it’s a false alarm and also that it’s a student house in case they ask for a code.

The student house meets the safety standards in case of fire. Fire blanket and first aid kit are available in the kitchens in case one should injure oneself or accidentally start a fire. Fire extinguishers can be found in the kitchens and centrally in the hallways. Finally, each room is equipped with a smoke detector. Deep-frying fat or oils are also prohibited for our roommates to reduce the fire risk.
Every year we have roommates who know something about first aid or who receive this first aid in their training. If you have knowledge and skills in first aid, you can let your roommates know: the faster you can intervene, the better.
Pharmacy is a 2 minute walk from here.
We also advise our roommates to regularly check expiration dates, not to leave dishes behind, or to keep garbage in the room, this way you keep yourself healthy and your room mold and bacteria-free.
