The Montbéliard Community of Municipalities (CAPM), located in the Eastern part of France, is facing different types of natural and technological risks that could affect its territory: flooding, chemical and radiological accidents, etc. In 2006, as part of its Radiation Protection Pilot Project, the CAPM decided to engage a specific collaboration with CEPN and KIT within the EURANOS Project to explore the preparedness process associated with potential nuclear or radiological emergencies and recovery situations. For this purpose, the RODOS Decision Support System for emergency and rehabilitation preparedness was used at a community level. After customisation of the tool with local data, different accident scenarios were simulated. As a result, the territory has engaged concrete actions (inventorying buildings that could accommodate populations in case of evacuation, assessing iodine tablets stocks available on the territory).
