Safety Rules for Falling on the Road within Passenger Platform Limits

Safety Rules for Falling on the Road Within the Passenger Platform Limits:
1.    Stay in Place:
•    If you fall on the road within the passenger platform limits, it's crucial not to move. Attempting to climb onto the platform by yourself may pose the risk of electrocution.
2.    Assess Train Arrival:
•    Look in the direction where the train is expected to determine if the train has arrived. If it's approaching, lying down between the rails with your head facing the train's direction is advised.
3.    Alert Authorities:
•    If the train or its light is not visible, stay where you are and inform metro staff or a police officer, either personally or through other passengers. This ensures a safe removal from the road.

Fire Safety Rules

Fire Safety Rules:

Inform Authorities:
In case of discovering a fire (smoke, sparks, ignition) at the station, immediately inform metro staff. If on a train, use "passenger-driver" communication to inform the train driver.
Follow Metro Staff Instructions:
Act according to the instructions of metro staff in case of fire. Evacuating on your own is not advisable unless absolutely necessary. Due to the high voltage present in both the pantographs on both sides of the passenger car and various undercarriage equipment, along with the contact rail (3rd rail), extreme caution is necessary.


Emergency Evacuation Safety Rules in the Tunnel (as an exception)

Safety Rules for Tunnel Evacuation:
•    If forced to evacuate in a tunnel:
•    Avoid exiting from the 1st and 4th doors of the car, as they may be under voltage. Exit from the 2nd and 3rd doors.
•    Do not touch the cars while passing in the tunnel, as they may start moving and have high voltage in the current receiver.
•    Move on the opposite side of the contact rail of the road.
•    Avoid walking on top of sleepers, stepping on equipment details, junctions, rails, and cables.
•    If holding a wet towel over your mouth and nose, it can offer some protection to your respiratory organs against smoke.
By adhering to these safety rules, passengers contribute to their own safety and the overall well-being of everyone in the metro system.
