Around the ramparts

Think of the tranquility and safety of those nearby. You are also reminded that the throwing of any projectile from the top of the ramparts may be dangerous for those nearby.

Evacuation in case of fire 

In the case of an incident, a siren will sound and light up (an evacuation message will be given in French and English).

The personnel, easily identified thanks to their yellow jackets, are responsible for calmly evacuating the public.

The permanent personnel trained in Safety First (AFPS and PSC1 – French qualifications) are able to offer safety-first assistance to visitors.
