In an radiological emergency, the priority of quick response teams is protecting both the public and
the personnel directly involved in the incident (either specialist and non specialist in radiological risk) in order to minimize the health impact upon the exposure to and contamination from ionizing
Upon arrival at the incident location, and despite the suspected or confirmed presence of radioactive materials, they immediately make the initial evaluation of the radiological risk in order to mark the security perimeter necessary to evacuate the public and to close the affected area off.
Depending of the event and its seriousness, the emergency services undertake both the research and
the characterization of the radioactive sources to split the intervention zone into sectors.
