SRPP FIRE DRILL 2019 As it has done every year for nearly 25 years, the Société Réunionnaise des Produits Pétroles (SRPP) devoted one day to organizing a large-scale fire drill.
WHAT IS A PPRT ? Introduced by the law of July 30, 2003, on the prevention of technological and natural risks and on compensation for damage and the implementing decree of September 7, 2005, the purpose of Technological Risk Prevention Plans (PPRT) is to regulate more closely future urban development around high- threshold Seveso sites. The PPRT is a document drawn up by the State. It maps exposure to risk around any given facility, taking into account the nature and intensity of the technological risks and the preventive measures implemented. The Group also consistently considers the impacts of their facilities and activities on residents’ lives. Indeed, this is a requirement for Seveso sites, resulting in the signing of Technological Risk Prevention Plans (PPRT) drawn up with local authorities and relevant associations (see section 4.2.3, which details the industrial safety measures implemented). The Group’s stakeholders consist of employees and their representatives (union representatives, Health, Safety and Working Conditions Committee (CHSCT), etc.), shareholders, national and local governmental bodies (DREALs, DRIEE, etc.), regulatory agencies, trade unions, associations and other private agencies working on social and environmental issues, customers and suppliers, as well as communities living near subsidiaries’ facilities.
As a Seveso-classified company with sec urit y and busines s information objectives, the SRPP has an internal emergency plan to manage operational risks according to different predefined scenarios, called the Internal Operations Plan (POI), and an external emergency plan drawn up with the administration and the competent authorities, called the Specific Intervention Plan (PPI). The 2019 exercise provided an opportunity to test the PPI, which defines the public emergency resources to be deployed, under the authority of the Prefect, in the event of an accident for which the consequences extend beyond the site’s boundaries.
This exercise thus enabled all the players involved, the SRPP, the SDIS (Departmental Fire and Rescue Service), the police, the town hall and state services (prefecture, sub-prefecture, DREAL, civil security) to activate the warning systems, to check the applicability of the procedures described in the Plans and to ensure good communication and coordination between the participants. Thanks to the regular mobilization of the appropriate human and technical resources, these exercises are opportunities for SRPP staff to train and maintain a high level of knowledge and vigilance, with valuable and insightful feedback.
