The general alarm is sounded using outdoors sirens and mobile sirens attached to vehicles. The alarm is a warning of an immediate danger threatening those currently outdoors. Going indoors and acting according to instructions form the primary, and usually sufficient, method of protection. Everybody should be able to recognise the general alarm and know what to do when it is sounded.
Always call the emergency number 112 in case of emergencies in which lives, health, property or the environment are threatened or in danger. Depending on the situation, the Emergency Response Centre will call for a police officer, a rescue, ambulance or social welfare worker.
