A plan Vigipirate re-imagined. To adapt to the terrorist threat now hanging permanently in France, the Elysée palace confirmed on Wednesday an “in depth review” of this tool against terrorism that has seen the light of day in 1978, reports the Figaro.

A Council of Defense and national security, gathered around François Hollande, has thus validated a consolidated plan that will be put in place as soon as Thursday. “Adapted to the evolution of threats, [it] will complement the measures taken since the attacks that struck our country,” the president said in a statement.

The plan Vigipirate, which was not until now that two levels of alert – “vigilance” and ” alert attack “, will be featuring a scale of one to three stages : “vigilance “, “enhanced security” and ” emergency attack “. This third level would be “adopted in a timely manner, immediately after a bombing, or in view of the imminence of a terrorist action,” writes the Figaro, which compares to the extraordinary measures involved (closure of roads or metro stop to school travel…) to those of the plan, ” abduction alert “.
