Due to the security situation in Sweden
The Swedish Government and the Swedish Security Servicehave raised the terror threat level from level 3 to level 4. University West follows and refers to the recommendations found on the MSB and the Swedish Security Service websites. Read more on the web page "Due to raised terror threat level".
If an attack were to take place
The advice in the event of an attack is to follow the three steps: run, hide, tell.
Run (escape if you can):
Put yourself in safety. Leave the place as quickly and safely as possible and avoid crowds.
Hide (Find cover - if escape is not possible):
If you are unable to leave the area, find a place that you deem safe and that will provide you with protection. Pay attention to what you see and hear and try to remain calm. Put the mobile phone on silent and turn off the vibration. Do not call anyone who may be in the danger zone. The mobile signal can reveal a person who is hiding.
Tell (Call the emergency services):
When you are safe, call the police via 112. The police need to know: the location, what has happened, how many perpetrators you have seen, what weapons they used, what they look like and where you last saw them. Warn those in danger and help those in need.
When you raise the alarm in the event of an urgent threat or violent situation - remember!
Ambulance, fire brigade, police - in emergency situations call 112
- Inform about what has happened
- Say your own name and phone number
- Please, answer any additional questions from SOS Alarm
