Please note that the plan has not been elaborated due to any present
or expected emergency, but is merely a standard procedure in the
Nordic cooperation on consular matters.
The plan consists of general advice on basic readiness and of which
measures to take in an actual emergency depending on the seriousness
of the emergency if it should arise. It is however impossible to
predict in detail what steps may be needed in an actual emergency.
Everyone should therefore be prepared to use their own judgment on
suitable steps to take.
The plan was last updated 8.4.2019
Please keep the plan ready at hand in case it is needed.

get in touch with your Embassy to inform of your presence and of any
possible nonregistered citizens in your local area that you know of.
You can use the electronic form at your Embassy´s website to register
your presence in Algeria. Don’t forget to update your information once
a year.
The Emergency Organization Set-up
The embassies initiate the contact to and between the Algerian
authorities and the authorities in their respective home countries.
Regional meeting places
The meeting places are to be used if it seems advisable to gather the
Nordic citizens at the same place. However, in most emergency
situations it is recommended to stay at home until the situation has
been evaluated. You should establish contact with your Embassy as soon

Advice and recommendations on preventive measures in case of an
emergency situation
Keep yourself and your family informed of what is happening in the
country, consult the Embassy´s website and local news sites like TSA
(Tout sur l’Algérie) www.tsa-algerie.com and find out where there is a
meeting place for Nordic citizens, this will usually be in the Nordic
embassies, so make sure you know where they are located. Do not spread
rumours in an emergency situation. Please inform your Embassy if you
receive information. It is advisable that you and family members are
regularly updated with first aid training.

Documents
Make sure that your personal documents are valid and up to date at all
times, such as: passports, driver’s license and residence/work
permits. Keep cash in local and convertible currencies available.
An advice is to keep a “grab bag” (do not fill it with more than you
can carry) ready at hand which should contain necessary belongings
like:
-copies of all pages of your passport and residence permit
-extra passport photos (they may be needed in an evacuation situation
for visa application into a neighbouring country)
-medicines and light first aid kit
-list of personal belongings that you are leaving in the house
-jogging shoes or other comfortable shoes and warm clothes -aluminium
mats (to keep warm)
-charger for mobile phone or solar cell chargers (foldable) if
available -satellite phone if available
-torch and batteries (a minitorch can be placed at your keyring)
-whistle (can be placed at your keyring)
-toilet bag
-some water and dry biscuits etc.

Emergency storage in your home
In an emergency situation, there may be a shortage of power or black
out. Check and make sure that you have:
-petrol/diesel and if necessary oil in store for the generator
-tins and other non-perishable foods in storage incl. drinking water
-a spare gas cylinder, if you have a gas cooker -torches/batteries,
candles/matches
-battery powered radio and working batteries, if you store batteries
keep them in a cool place
Also, check that:
-your first aid kit and medicine store is up to date
-you have enough fuel for the car, try not to have less than half a
tank of fuel
-you have spare tyre/tyres and that necessary spare parts, tools and
maps are available Make an inventory list of your personal belongings
should it be necessary to leave your home
Emergency plan for Nordic citizens in Algeria

Appendix D
In case of an earthquake
The chances of survival are greater if you have prepared yourself
mentally and are informed about what to do in case of a major
earthquake, before, during and after.
All family members should know where the main gas switch is to be able
to turn it off.
All family members should know where to gather outside after an
earthquake.
Try to keep calm!
If you are inside
Try to identify places in the house where you can find shelter during
an earthquake, for example under a solid table or a bed. If you are in
bed, stay there.
Avoid being close to a window or in a door opening. Do not use
elevators when evacuating.

If you are outside
Keep as far away as you can from falling items from houses, buildings,
trees, electrical wires, bridges etc. Look around to avoid landslides,
cracks in the ground or in roads.

If you are in a car
Drive as quickly as possible within security limits away from bridges,
viaducts, electrical wires, trees and buildings and pull up by the
side of the street or road. Stay in the car until the earthquake
subsides.

If you are close to the sea
Try to get away from the coast in case there is a tsunami. A tsunami
can occur several minutes after the earthquake has subsided or even
several hours after if the earthquake occurred further away.

Appendix D
In case of a kidnapping
If you have been kidnapped, stay calm and do as told. Your chances for
survival are better if you maintain a low profile. Do not seek any
form of attention or play the hero as the result could have fatal
consequences.
Be calm and honest if you are asked any questions. Explain who you are
and your status. Make it a point to inform that you are politically
neutral.
When the situation calms down try to establish contact with the
kidnappers. Get them to see and feel that you are a caring person. Ask
them about their families. Tell them about your families. Listen to
their problems and try to find out the reason for the kidnapping. Do
not create unrealistic expectations since you cannot promise them
anything. This will only worsen your situation. Do not act or express
yourselves in any way that may be provocative.
Try to eat and drink when it is offered even if you are not hungry
because of the situation and stress. It will help you to react
sensibly. A daily routine with physical exercises and personal hygiene
will make you appear to be a strong person both physically and
mentally - you will be a stronger person. Think about your family,
friends, pets, your favourite songs or movies etc. that will help make
the waiting time bearable.
If you are going to be freed under violent circumstances - lie down
flat on your stomach and with your hands behind your head to protect
it visibly. Follow the police/military instructions.

Appendix E

Emergency situation I Stay at home
This advice concerns measures during a crisis of a less serious matter
that could potentially become more severe and an emergency situation.
Experience has shown that in an emergency situation, the safest and
calmest place to be is at home and that more drastic emergency
measures in many cases are not needed.
Information from your Embassy will be updated regularly at the website
and Facebook if possible to use the internet.
You should take the following precautions:
-You should inform the Embassy that you and your family are at home,
if communication is possible.
-Stay with the family indoors until further notice. Do not leave your
house.
If there is a risk of shooting or bomb/shell explosions:
-Stay away from the windows. To reduce the risk of glass splinter,
draw the curtains and cover the windows with mattresses and carpets.
-Stay in the inner part of the house or in a corridor. Lie down or sit
on the floor.
-If the Algerian authorities declare a curfew, it must be followed
unconditionally.
Civil unrest:
-It is best to avoid big groups of people and demonstrations, as they
can suddenly turn violent without warning.
-If you find yourself caught in a violent demonstration and you cannot
get away from it - try and stay calm. Do not look straight into the
eyes of people as this can be regarded as provocative. -If social
unrest should occur be prepared that all mobile and internet lines may
be down for a longer period.
If the emergency situation is expected to last for a longer period,
you should do the following, unless your Embassy recommend otherwise:
-Fill containers with drinking water and fill water into bathtubs,
buckets, jerry cans etc.
-If possible listen to the local radio.
-If an evacuation is expected, plan what you and your family need to
bring.
-If an evacuation is conceivable, bring out maps for possible routes.
Try to find out which roads are passable.
-Try to take the shortest road to one of the Nordic embassies.
Emergency plan for Nordic citizens in Algeria

Appendix F
Emergency situation II Quick assembly at your Embassy
This concerns a serious but probably passing emergency situation,
where immediate danger for personal assaults can occur.
This level of readiness is also used in connection with an evacuation.
In an emergency situation where an assembly of Nordic citizens is
recommended at one of the Nordic embassies, you should do the
following:
-Quickly move yourself and your family to one of the Nordic Embassies
-Use your own vehicle if the road is passable -Bring passports,
driver´s license, cash etc.
-Bring hand luggage and if you have sleeping bags, inflatable
mattresses, blankets, provisions and drinking water
Remember - In a situation like this, the most important is for you and
your family to get to a safe place, not to save your belongings!

Appendix C - Basic readiness
Emergency plan for Nordic citizens in Algeria

Appendix G
Evacuation
In a severe crisis, it might be considered to evacuate Nordic citizens
to a safer place within the country, to a neighbouring country or to
the home country. In many cases, evacuation will be made by air. The
Nordic Embassies in co-operation with the authorities in your home
country would arrange evacuation by air. Alternative evacuations could
be by boat or over land.
If your Embassy recommends you to prepare for an evacuation, you
should do the following:
-Pack suitcases with necessary clothes and things that could be needed
in case of an evacuation. Do not forget food and water. Mark the cases
with name and contents.
-Make a list of your personal belongings that will be left behind.
-Make necessary arrangements to leave the house/flat: who takes care
of keys? Who will look after and guard the house? What is to be done
with pets? Please note that pets cannot be brought.
-Prepare your vehicle for transport.
Await instructions from the Embassy before leaving.
If you intend to leave on your own
-Inform your Embassy. This is to avoid worrying relatives and to avoid
unnecessary search. If you cannot get in contact with your Embassy,
you may try contacting any of the other Nordic embassies in Algiers.
You could also try to leave a message at your Embassy in the country
you expect to enter in to.
-Please keep yourself informed about the necessity for visas to
surrounding countries. No visas are needed for Nordic citizens to
Tunisia or if you are flying in to Morocco.
Cost of evacuation – who pays?
-Costs arising in connection with an evacuation have to be paid by the
persons concerned (either by themselves or through their employing
organization). A payment guarantee must be signed at departure.
N.B. Evacuation is voluntary
