Warning alarms

When the alarm sounds, there is no ventilation in the laboratories anymore.

This means that nobody is allowed to stay in the laboratories and that everybody must leave their laboratory, and that the door must be closed.

If you press the reset button, you are responsible for that everybody on your floor is informed that they must leave their laboratory and close the door.

Then you must contact the Buildings Administration (see phone numbers by the elevator).

Megaphones as fire alarm in the Science Park

Since there is no fire alarm in MBG-Science Park, the department has purchased two megaphones that can also sound an alarm. The megaphones are hanging by the fire instructions in buildings 3130 and 3135 - by the luncheon room and by Erik's office.

See how to use the megaphone (MUST only be used in connection with fire)

Burglar alarm in the Science Park

The yellow brick buildings
The burglar alarm in the Science Park (the yellow brick buildings) is automatically switched on in the evening. It is still possible to work with the alarm on as it is only being activated by broken glass or by heavy closing of doors or windows. The alarm also starts if you keep the outer door open for more than around 10 seconds.

If the alarm sounds:
Check out the situation to see if there is anything unusual.

Call 70334455 and give them

  1. your name
  2. the CODE (ask your colleague, if you have forgotten it -all new staff and students get the CODE)
  3. your ID access card number (at the back or front of your access card) and explain the situation.

Do NOT enter anything on the display (the alarm stops automatically after 3 minutes).
If you fail to call the number above when the alarm sounds, they will send a guard and the department gets to pay for this visit.
