Emergencies outside the UM premises

In case of an emergency, call the national EMERGENCY NUMBER 112. Here they will inquire whether you need an ambulance, the police or the fire department and will connect you to the right department. If you need the police but it is not an emergency, please call 0900 8844.

Emergencies on UM premises

Emergencies must be reported via phone number 1333. You will need to indicate:

• your name, phone number the building you are in

What to do if the fire alarm (slow whoop) goes off?

Leave the building immediately and follow all instructions issued by employees wearing the brightly coloured vests labelled ‘BHV’ (emergency assistant). They are responsible for evacuating the room or building. You can return to the room or building once the BHV has deemed the situation safe.
