Communal emergency backup plan (Plan Communal de Sauvegarde - PCS)

Current law requires that the mayor in municipalities provides a prevention action plan to deal with foreseeable natural risks, such as floods, explosions, exceptional heat-waves, terrorist threats and so on. To this end a number of local communes, including Catus, held drills on Friday 6 February between 20:00 and 23:30.
In Catus the drill was based on the simulation of an exceptional flood in the village, with volunteers in teams doing house-to-house visits to buildings and property on both banks of the river Vert to ensure that occupants were made aware of the problems and action to be taken by them. The mayor and councillors were based in the town hall to direct the exercise.
