But if you see a number after: béton avec pcf, then it can be also some kind of density.

Good luck!

poste de commandement fixe


Explanation:
Not clear from your context whether this PCF is a material found in the concrete or whether it's part of the 'etape' but here's a shot:

From the link below:

A 6 heures, un incident à la centrale entraîne le déclenchement du PUI. L'alerte est aussitôt transmise au préfet qui active un poste de commandement fixe (PCF) dans les locaux de la préfecture. Puis la situation se dégrade, amenant le préfet à mettre en œuvre le PPI vers 8 heures. Un poste de commandement opérationnel (PCO) est installé à Sotteville-sur-Mer, sous le commandement du directeur de cabinet du préfet. En fin de matinée les routes qui mènent à Saint-Sylvain et Ingouville sont bloquées par les gendarmes. Dans la centrale, les techniciens s'affairent à remettre en service les dispositifs de sûreté qui tombent en panne les uns après les autres.

Fixed command post?
