Course Test



  • If the fire is very small (for example: it’s burning the curtains), try to extinguish it with a fire extinguisher or water.
  • If the fire is due to an electricity short-circuit, do not use water.
  • Keep your composure, do not panic, but think about the way in which you can leave the building.
  • Proper action requires us to evacuate first and then call 112 for an emergency call.
  • Use evacuation routes (corridors, stairs, external stairs).
  • During evacuation, close the doors behind you.
  • If your clothes catch fire, stop, lie down, cover your face with your palms, and roll until the fire goes out.
  • If it is smoky, cover your mouth and nose with a towel or clothing, moving low to the ground as you exit the building.
  • When you go outside and you are safe, use the telephone and call 112, saying who is calling, the address of the fire, the type of building, giving instructions on where the fire is and whether there are trapped people, animals, etc.
  • If you are locked or blocked in a room, use tapes, wet towels or clothes to close any cracks around the door. Open the windows and stand next to them.
  • Help your classmates to gather. Listen to the teacher who will give you information on whether to evacuate or stay in the classroom.
  • If you find yourself in a crowd of people, fold your arms at the elbows and lean back, try to slowly free up space to move forward.
  • Preventive measure: inquire information about the dormitory evacuation scheme - evacuation route from your room (direction, corridors, staircase, assembly point outside the building).
  • If the fire has spread to an entire room, don’t try to extinguish it with a fire extinguisher.
  • If the fire is due to an electricity short-circuit, do not use water.
  • Under no circumstances don’t think about the dilemma: will we put out the fire and, if we fail, we call 112.
  • The use of elevators is prohibited during the evacuation.
  • If your clothes catch fire, do not run.
  • If the door or its handle is hot, if smoke comes out under or around it, do not open it. This means that the fire is nearby.
  • After leaving the building, do not go back for anything.
  • When evacuating, do not separate from the column with students, do not run and use the corridors and stairs that are not affected by the fire.
  • If you find yourself in a crowd of people, do not try to keep up with the pressure of the crowd.
  • In case of forest fire, you shouldn’t go to the opposite direction to the wind and directly to the danger area.
