AU Evacuate app

AU has developed an evacuation app, AU Evacuate, as a supplement to the existing emergency response.

Aarhus BSS Building Services can send out emergency alerts via the AU Evacuate app in critical situations where either specific buildings need to be evacuated, or where other critical circumstances require that a message must reach everyone in a specific area as fast as possible.

AU Evacuate covers Aarhus BSS in Aarhus: buildings 1320 - 1415, buildings 1440 - 1444, buildings 1446 - 1447 and buildings 2610 - 2641.

The app alerts you directly by means of an alarm sound on your smartphone. The app keeps you updated on how the situation is developing and notifies you when the crisis is over.

We encourage all employees and students who work at or visit these areas to download the app and allow push notifications (messages displayed on the phone screen regardless of whether the phone is locked or in use). 

Employees at Aarhus BSS with employer-paid mobile phones are obliged to install the app.

Where can I find the app?

You can find the app in App Store (iOS) or on Google Play (Android) by searching for ‘AU Evacuate’. In the app settings, you can choose to also receive text and/or email alerts.

I don’t have a smartphone – can I receive alerts in another way?

If you don’t have a smartphone, or if you have a Windows-based smartphone, you can choose to receive alerts via text message and/or email. You can register for the service here.

When will the app be used?

AU Evacuate is a supplement to AU’s existing emergency response. The app will be used to send out emergency alerts in critical situations where either specific buildings need to be evacuated, or where other critical circumstances require that a message must reach everyone in a specific area as fast as possible.

The app will also be used in connection with evacuation drills. It will appear from the message whether the alert concerns a drill.

Who will receive and send out the alerts?

Once you have installed the app, choose which (s) area or building (s) you want to receive notifications for. The alerts will be sent out by Aarhus BSS Building Services. 

Where can I get technical assistance?

If you have trouble installing the app, please contact Aarhus BSS IT support
