Penser l'alerte par les distances. Entre planification et émancipation, l'exemple du processus d'alerte aux crues rapides sur le bassin versant du Vidourle

Abstract : Contesting the classical approach of warnings, a new approach of warning processes (WP) aims to understand the warning as the process by which actors consider some entities (e.g. Latour 1991, Murdoch 1997) and transform them into signs, relevant enough to ground and coordinate their action(s). Focusing on the concrete manner the actors run the WP, we realized a deep study of the whole flash floods WP in the Vidourle catchment (South of France), from the meteo- forecasters to the riverside residents. Coming within the scope of Lussault's (2007) work, we analyzed what kind of distances are at stake during the WP, and all the resources mobilized by the actors during the WP in order to deal with distances and to assess the situation : we typified six main technologies de la distance, and three stratégies de la distance. At last, it appears that the efficiency of the technologies, of the strategies, and in a larger way, of the actors' practices in the WP, relies only for a part on the planning and the warning systems. Thus, we cannot longer avoid considering the so-called « infra- planning »(Soubeyran, 2007), and concrete actors' practices, in warning studies.
