In case of an emergency on the train, press the yellow emergency alarm bars to sound an alarm, or use the intercom located next to each door on the train to speak to the operator. The yellow emergency alarm bar should only be used for emergencies. It is not used to signal your stop.

The train is also equipped with an emergency door release and an emergency window punch. To open the doors in an emergency, break the safety glass and pull the handle to release the doors.

The alarm bar, door release and window punch should only be used in case of an emergency. Misuse of these can result in a fine.
