Emergency services warns: high risk for snow - and isras from the roof in Oslo

The last week, there has fallen large amounts of snow over the Eastern regions, but the Friday night beat mildværet and it started to rain.

Strong warning

the Result of this is that there is now a great danger for snow - and isras from the roofs in Oslo. Both the fire brigade and police went on the night of Saturday out with clear warnings on their Twitter accounts.

"Warning. Great danger of snow - and isras from the roofs in Oslo. OBRE (Oslo fire - and redningsetat, journ.anm.) have in the night been out with several stigebiler to remove snow and ice from the roof", the printer 110 to the pbx.

Vaktkommandør at 110 centre, Stig Henning Duaas, says that the last day has 14 records of the mission which relates to the removal of ice and snow from the roof.

- On some of these missions, we have also had two stigebiler, say Duaas, to Dagbladet.

In the attach cases, it is the passerby who alerts either the fire department or the police. When will the first bymiljøetaten run out to consider, before they notify the police, who in turn will contact the fire department.

They pluck out what they have the capacity to. The bill for the utrykningen go directly to gårdeier.

It has been very much now. With regnværet so melting snow and ice also detach it from the ceiling, say Duaas, which is reminiscent of that it basically is gårdeierne have the responsibility for clearing snow and ice from the roof.

- It can have serious consequences if someone gets ice in the head, say Duaas.

- Expect more messages

Also the police took to Twitter last night to warn of rasfaren.

"We in the emergency services want to focus on the icicles/takras in these days. There will be sense of alertness from the individual. Security is gårdeiers responsibility, but by the concern about the contact with the municipality, or alternatively the emergency services at risk to life and health", writes the police.

- We receive the most messages about this on day and night especially, but we have received two messages in the night. When we now go into this mild season, so we expect several messages on this, " says operasjonsleder Tor Gulbrandsen at Oslo police.

Several all the owners of buildings have the last few days, put out signs that warn about the risk of avalanche. But, says Gulbrandsen, it deprives them not responsible for to remove it that is in danger of falling down from the ceiling.

- You must do both, " says Gulbrandsen.

Can be politisak

He tells that when a gårdeier do not comply with their commitments to clean the roof of snow and ice to prevent dangerous situations, so will the municipality utferdige a an administrative fine. It is the result in most of the cases in which the public react against a gårdeier.

But it can also be a politisak, even if no one is damaged by a landslide.

In the few cases something falling, and there is a risk for persons, then it becomes an assessment from the police side if we are investigating the incident or not. Has anybody been injured, so the detective we, " says Gulbrandsen.

But the police can initiate investigations even if no one comes to harm?

- Yes, then there will be a review. It is associated with great danger when it races from an apartment building in Oslo, it need not be very high once. It keeps with the two-three floors. Get some a istapp or a load of snow over him, so it can go really bad for whoever gets hit.

Both the fire brigade and police hope their warnings makes people a little more alert.

If the event of an accident, so you get perhaps the little forvarselet you need, " says operasjonsleder Gulbrandsen.

sometimes it goes terribly wrong. In march 2010, was 24-year-old Robin Vedvik Helmersen near death when he got a takras in the head in Tønsberg.

Both the owner of the building and driftslederen had to face in court. After several rettsrunder was the owner of the building finally acquitted by the Supreme court, while driftslederen was sentenced to 60 days ' imprisonment for gross negligence.

- It is intimidating to many who do not take rasfaren seriously
