Fire can kill! So be cautious!
Fire accidents can be avoided with proper fire protection and preventive measures. During summer and all year round, we must all be conscious and alert when it comes to the rules of fire safety. To help you to have a wonderful and safe summer experience, here are some of the things you need to remember:

  • In France there are four levels of forest fire risk (green, orange red and black), depending of the period of the year and the weather conditions.


  • Cadarache is located in a forested zone; this is why several prevention measures will be applied outside the ITER and CEA domains from 1 July to 30 September, such as temporary sign postings and brush clearing along the roads.


  • If you smoke, use deep, sturdy ashtrays and ensure that cigarettes are stubbed out properly.


  • If you see any fire, immediately call the Fire Brigade by dialing 18.
