<Dissonance Vector Internal ComNet Message>
<NOTICE TO ALL CREW RE: Evacuation.>
<01:30 hours, YC112.10.28>
<Priority: A - mandatory access>
All crew to be aware: The Dissonance Vector is a military vessel that is intended for use in warfare operations involving capsuleer combatants on all sides. This means that the destruction of this ship under fire is not merely likely - it is inevitable.
THERE IS NO CLONING SERVICE AVAILABLE TO CREW ON THIS VESSEL.*
Unannounced emergency evacuation drills will be conducted at random intervals throughout the service life of this vessel. There will also be twice weekly prescheduled drills.
THESE DRILLS ARE OF VITAL IMPORTANCE TO YOUR OWN SURVIVAL AND THOSE AROUND YOU.
You will find the instructions for emergency evacuation procedure plus an audio file of the evacuation alarm sound included in your orientation package. Memorise and rehearse them until they become second nature.
YOU MAY HAVE AS LITTLE AS FIVE SECONDS TO REACH SAFETY.
Any crew member who cannot immediately recognize and respond to the evacuation alarm faces expulsion from the crew without outstanding pay. Your performance will be monitored.
THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE IN PROCEDURE BETWEEN A DRILL AND A REAL EVACUATION
This may mean that the only notice you get that the ship is really being evacuated will be when the escape capsule you have boarded launches. For this reason you MUST treat all evacuation alarms as the real thing. There will be no "this is not a drill" announcements.
If you believe that a member of your work team has failed to properly learn evacuation procedure, it is your duty FOR THEIR OWN SAFETY to report them to your team leader, section chief or to the XO.
Executive Officer, Dissonance Vector.
*with the exception of some senior staff. If you have not already been offered a cloning service, then you are not eligible.
