Practical information

Measures for the protection of the population

The Federal Public Service "Internal Affairs" regularly informs the population located in the emergency planning zones on the measures taken for their protection. Practical instructions are also described in leaflets that are available on request from the information official of the Federal Public Service "Internal Affairs".

The protective measures, such as :

protection of the food chain


sheltering in a building or in a house


distribution and ingestion of stable iodine tablets


• even, in extreme cases, evacuation


are spread through the media or by means of sirens for example.
