If the alarm sounds, follow these directions

If you are outdoors

You will be warned by the IPA (Important Public Announcement) siren,

which sounds for 7 seconds, followed by 14 seconds silence, followed by

7 seconds and so on.

• Go indoors. You have better protection indoors than out.


If you are indoors

You will be alerted by your RDS receiver starting

and Swedish Radio P4 reading an announcement.

• Close doors, windows and ventilation.

Then contaminated air cannot get in.

• Listen to Swedish Radio P4 Uppland.

You will be told what has happened and what you should do.

• Help others. For example, take in people that need shelter indoors.

• Stay inside. Don’t go outside until the All Clear announcement has been

given by Swedish Radio P4 Uppland.

Protect animals

• Keep animals indoors.

• Listen to Swedish Radio P4 Uppland for advice on grazing animals,

pigs and pets.

Possible urgent measures:

• Take in animals that are outside, in the first place dairy cattle.

• Where possible close stable and food store doors and windows.

• Avoid using water from shallow, open sources or ditches.

Important Public Announcement (IPA)

The IPA (called VMA in Swedish) can also be used for other serious incidents

or complex disruptions. An IPA related to these incidents will set off RDS

receivers distributed to premises in the vicinity of the Forsmark nuclear

power plant. For outdoor warnings, sirens are located at selected locations

and they sound the same signal.

If you were not at home when an IPA was broadcast, you can get information

about what happened on www.svt.se and SVT Teletext page 100, for as long

as the IPA situation continues. On page 599 you will find the same message

that was read on the radio. You can also get information on

www.krisinformation.se and on www.sosalarm.se.


Siren testing

Siren tests are conducted on the first workday Monday of March, June,

September and December.

Outdoor siren:

Sounded at 1500 hours with the signal “Important Public Announcement”.

The test concludes with the “All Clear” signal.

Indoor alarm (RDS alarm):

Sounded at 1900 hours, and Swedish Radio P4 broadcast an announcement.


If the county administrative board orders an evacuation

• Via Swedish Radio P4 Uppland the county administrative board will

announce the areas that are to be evacuated.

• If you have access to a vehicle you should drive to an evacuation station

(indicated on the map by U ) outside the emergency zone. Listen to

Swedish Radio P4 Uppland to find out which evacuation station you

should go to.

• Take your pets with you.

• Listen to Swedish Radio P4 Uppland for advice on livestock and pets.

Measures that could become necessary:



Leave animals in their stalls with water and fodder

(hay and straw – no concentrated fodder) for a couple of days.


Give details of remaining animals to personnel at the evacuation

station or to the nearest police officer.

• If you can’t arrange transport for yourself you can go to the nearest

collection point. If you can’t take yourself to one of the collection points

you should contact the police who will evacuate you.

• Children in nursery, primary and secondary school will be evacuated

with their classes or groups to evacuation stations outside the emergency

zone. Details of evacuation stations in use are broadcast on Swedish

Radio P4 Uppland.

Iodine tablets

You should only take iodine tablets if requested to do so by the county

administrative board or the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority.

Take the tablets at the recommended times. The tablets must have

time to work before you get any radioactive iodine into your body.

The tablets protect the thyroid gland from radiation. They don’t protect

anything else. Adults over 40 don’t need to take iodine tablets as medical

research has shown that there is no risk of that age group developing

thyroid cancer from radioactive iodine.


Infants, younger than a month:

Children 1 month - 3 years:

Children 3 - 12 years:

Children over 12:

Adults, under 40:

Adults, over 40 don’t need to take tablets.

If pregnant or breast-feeding, tablets should be taken on

a maximum of two occasions.

The tablets can be chewed or swallowed

whole, they taste of salt; you should

therefore take them with water. For infants,

the dose can broken up and dissolved in

a little water or salt. One dose provides

protection for 48 hours.

The leaflet in the tablet box contains detailed information.
