Emergency response plan in the event of extreme weather conditions

Description:

In the event of extreme weather conditions, the emergency response plan (PIU) is a framework document for managing weather-related emergencies in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The concrete measures to be taken shall be decided upon by the competent authorities for national protection at the appropriate time, communicated to the public and put in place by the competent agencies and departments.

The plan aims to set the bodies that will manage the crisis; set the preventive and protective measures to be taken; and establish the alert procedures for the authorities and for informing the public in the event of an emergency situation. The plan defines the actions the government will take in the event of orange or red weather alerts due to gusts of wind; snow or freezing precipitation; storms; great/extreme heat; great/extreme cold; or rain.
