The crisis and emergency app of Bielefeld University EVALARM
Bielefeld University provides a free emergency and crisis app to all members of the University in case of emergency situations occurring on campus.
The crisis and emergency app EVALARM (evacuation alarm) sends you important warning alerts and instructions from Bielefeld University on how to proceed in various emergency situations on campus e.g. the spread of hazardous substances or a major fire.
The crisis and emergency app is an additional means of reporting hazardous situations on campus to the existing fire alarm systems.
As well as the "warning function", the crisis and emergency app can also be used to make a personal emergency call/SOS in emergency situations (valid only on the campus of the University within a radius of 1 km). Also, general information, emergency tips and site plans for emergency facilities are stored on the app.
The technical interface for the EVALARM crisis and emergency app is a communication platform that maps the emergency and crisis management systems of Bielefeld University. As a rule, alerts to a specific emergency situation on campus are issued by the crisis team of Bielefeld University and can be detected up to a radius of 1 km around the university (geofencing).
Latest update: Version 1.8 of the EVALARM app has been available since 5 March 2019. If you have not received automatic updates on your smartphone and the app was installed before this date, please update the app in the usual way (i.e. via Apple AppStore or Google PlayStore) so that you can continue to receive alerts reliably.
Please note that you will need to log in again after the update to receive alerts.
Why is the crisis and emergency app necessary?
The EVALARM app enables you to quickly receive the latest warning alerts (push notification) and instructions on how to act in hazardous situations occurring on the campus of Bielefeld University.
With the emergency call function/ SOS you are connected directly to the University's central control in the event of an emergency (0521-106-112).
Emergency procedures, emergency tips as well as site plans for emergency facilities and equipment (e.g. locations of University emergency response officers, defibrillators) help to prepare you for possible emergency situations. powered by GroupKom GmbH
