  • Pharmaceutical information 0771-450 450
  • The police 114 14

Defibrillators

The University has a number of defibrillators (instructions are in Swedish). These can be found at the School of Health and Welfare, School of Education and Communication, School of Engineering, Jönköping International Business School, the University Library, Campus Arena, Nordic Wellness and the Caretaker’s Office. 

Fire

An evacuation plan in every stairwell shows the evacuation route for the part of the University where you currently are.

It also shows the locations of the nearest fire extinguisher, fire hose and alarm button. You can also see how fire-fighting equipment works. If you have any questions in connection with this, contact the Caretaker’s Office.

Save anyone who is in obvious danger.

Warn anyone who is threatened by the fire.

Raise the alarm by calling 112 and giving brief details of where the fire is, whether any people are trapped, and who is calling.

Extinguish – try to extinguish the fire if possible.

Isolate – if you cannot extinguish the fire, try to isolate it by shutting doors and windows to the premises where the fire is.

Evacuate via the nearest evacuation route. Do not use the lift.

Assembly points

School of Helth and Welfare

Students and staff should assemble at the car park in Munksjöparken. 

JIBS, School of Education and Communication and School of Engineering

Students and staff should assemble at the flagpoles west of the library building (by the bicycle stands). Remember that both entrances and the area between the School of Education and Communication and the library should be kept clear so that the emergency services can get easy access.

In the event of an evacuation, do not go back into the premises until the all-clear is given. 

Information channels

Information from the University in connection with unforeseen circumstances is updated on an ongoing basis on the Student web or on the staff's intranet. If the website is unavailable, this information will be made available via the University’s Facebook page and on boards at entrance doors.
