For the fire brigade to be able to start extinguishing the fire as efficiently and as quickly as possible, it is important to report the fire in a proper way, providing all of the information the fire brigade needs When reporting a fire, please follow these guidelines:
  • If you see a fire, call the fire brigade at 193
  • Speak calmly and enunciate
  • Describe what is happening and whether there are any people in danger
  • Specify the exact address of the event
  • Provide the fire control operator with all the information they ask you to provide
  • End the call once the fire control operator allows you to
  • Do not use the telephone line after calling the fire brigade in case it needs more information and calls you back.
