An "Emergency Plan Alert Documentation" was recently installed in all ITER buildings at meeting points; it contains information on the main alert procedure from sector 34 that must be followed in case of an emergency.

These documents should only be used in case of real emergency or in the case of a drill exercise. They should never be removed.

The Building Responsible Officer and his/her deputies are trained on application of the alert procedure in case of real emergency or drill exercise.

If they should be absent during a real emergency or drill exercise, line managers or any person confident enough to step forward should spontaneously assume their role.

No previous knowledge is necessary; just common sense and leadership skills.
