A smaller fire is fought with the foam extinguishers placed in the corridors. In case of larger fires, the fire-fighting service is called in immediately. This happens by dialing 112. Afterwards the fire alarm must be activated in the corridor by breaking the glass.
Activating the fire alarm does not automatically alert the firefighting service, so you must dial 112. The inspector or the Residents’ Council should be notified as quickly as possible. It is strictly forbidden to misuse the fire alarm system and the fire extinguishers. It is also illegal to cut through any wires to this vital equipment. This will lead to an immediate suspension of your lease. Fire drills are held from time to time to control that all alarms are working.
