Tips & info

    • Please speak to your neighbours to find out whether they are aware of the evacuation. Not everybody follows the media or understands German. Please help them with a simple conversation. 
    • Please also pay special attention to radio announcements.  
    • When you leave your home, it may be a good idea to leave your windows tilted open. 
    • The protected zone will be secured by the police and the Citizens Registration and Public Order Office. Please prepare yourself for the necessary evacuation and remember that any costs resulting from the police having to forcibly evacuate people will have to be reimbursed later.
