Military Plans in action right now:
“The French red plan (plan rouge) is a French emergency plan used if an emergency has a significant number of casualties in a limited area. Its aim is to organize the rescue resources to cope with the concentrated casualties.
The French white plan (plan blanc), is designed to face a sudden and unpredictable rise of the activity of a hospital.”
Artist Jean Jullien sends his support:
