English term or phrase: RECEO Acronym
RECEO is an acronym for Rescue, Exposures, Containment (control), Extinguish, Overhaul.

It is used by firefighters to remember the priorities when approaching a burning structure, especially one with hazardous materials (oil, gas) inside.

Is there a French equivalent for the guideline and the acronym? I haven't been able to find one on my own.
