This page documents the guidelines and procedures for each of the alert levels aboard the SEV Torch. Note that these are not laws, and the Commanding Officer may alter them as they see fit. Make sure to look at the Standard Operating Procedure for universal guidelines that do not change with the alert level. Note that only one alert level may be set at once, so the most relevant alert should be chosen.

Medical Suit Sensors are not mandatory at any setting.
Engineering EVA suit wear authorized for EVA Operations.
Research All operations unrestricted. Expeditions authorized. Asset Protection may wear and utilize any gear the Research Director deems necessary within the research laboratory.
Rules of Engagement Engage with non-lethal force after multiple verbal warnings and attempts to de-escalate. Do not engage with lethal force, unless facing non-sapient animals such as carp and spiders.
Docking Docking procedures normal
Telecommunications Galactic Common only on all public or departmental radio channels. Unrestricted use of all systems.
