[It may be in the company's interest to specify the crew's actions in dealing with outside agencies (such as the news media) after an evacuation.]

    4. To the extent practical and necessary, provide passengers with protection from environmental conditions.
    5. Passengers or crew are not to be permitted to return to the Aeroplane until it is safe to do so.
