It is 9:02 p.m. at the Orly airport, an airliner has crashed in the end, 130 people are on board, this is the beginning of the scenario of a fictitious accident staged in Wednesday night Thursday to put "in real life" a thousand actors of such a tragedy.
Since the crisis PC located in the South Terminal, the fifty people who are seated can see the horizon black striped dozens of little lights. These are the flashing lights of emergency service vehicles around the cockpit of an airliner at the end of a runway at Orly.
The striking effect is a sense of anxiety. Yet all the people gathered Wednesday night at Orly, know that this unprecedented deployment of resources is "for false."
This does not prevent firefighters, police officers, ambulance, Red Cross, etc.., Dozens of real members of the emergency services, to enable the tarmac around the cabin of an old A.300 requisitioned for the occasion.
In all, there are about 1,000 people who are mobilized to simulate plane crash and "test the coordination of services", "ensure information literacy" and "crisis communication", according to the prefecture of Val -de-Marne, supervisor of the year.
"Every individual gestures are gestures that can control every day. What is testing today is coordination between services," said the commander in charge of operations for firefighters Paris, David Guenanten, one of the few players to know all over the fictional scenario.
"And my Juju where is he?"
Start a fire and landing gear of an engine, bad weather preventing the helicopter evacuation of victims are some of the surprises of this year undertaken but it is the law of its kind, without the stress and emotion of a real disaster.
And the valiant firefighters and military spotted a red foundation and swaddled in blankets survival, make docile victims injured supposed to be burned at 80%.
They are transported from tent to tent to be examined, sorted and will give a bar code that will allow them to track.
"Identify the number of victims is the sinews of war," said the prosecutor Créteil, Nathalie Bécache which, taking the game to a legal requisition plague too late to retrieve the list of passengers to the airline imagination.
Elsewhere in the airport, other "actors" will also take the game
Priscilla whose "father and mother were in the plane," says be totally "overwhelmed, lost," even though in real life this official Department of the Environment, Centre voluntary grouping and information and control (Jack) Aero ports de Paris (ADP), starts to be especially tired of waiting "to one in the morning."
Suddenly, a tall blonde exclaimed with a cry of distress larger than life "and my Juju, where is he?" while false victims’ relatives are accompanied by members of the cell in a psychological disorder less artificial.
An official has understood and then launches the meeting: "Well, the year is about to end. Quit griping, or we'll be late."
"I do not know where the truth lies, me," replied a woman taking the way out, the arm of a member of the medical service in the white waistcoat.
