Fire protection affects us all. You, too, can make a huge difference if you observe a few important points. If you notice a fire, please try to extinguish it yourself immediately. This is always on the condition that there is no risk of injury to you. In this case, or if you do not think you can extinguish the fire yourself, please notify the fire brigade immediately. The emergency number is 112.If you notice heavy smoke in the house or if the smoke alarm sounds in a neigh-bouring flat, check to see if anyone is home. If you do not find anyone there, call 112 immediately. The smoke alarm system itself does not transmit a signal to the fire brigade!
