This code is used when an accident of emergent or possibly dangerous nature occurs outside a plant boundary, where industry or CVECO assistance may be required.

CVECO CODE 6 – Traffic Control
This code is used when an incident goes, or has the potential to go beyond the boundaries of a plant.  Traffic control is required in a designated area.

CVECO CODE 7 – Bomb Threat
This code is used to advise of a bomb threat.

CVECO CODE 8 –Noticeable Occurrence
This code is used to report a noticeable occurrence, or a potential problem, which could cause concern or inquiry by parties external to a CVECO member’s site.  A noticeable occurrence is considered to be any “unusual” incident which can be seen, heard, smelled, felt or tasted.
Information Code 8: non-emergency activity that may cause inquiry, but the situation is considered to have no impact to the health and safety of the public
Emergency Code 8: a facility internal emergency occurrence that may cause inquiry, but the situation is considered to have no impact to the health and safety of the public.
