123
h4. 8.3 Tracker Online Emergency Procedure - MU SB
124
125
* Provide documentation for ISIS and eventually shifters in what to do in an emergency situation for the Tracker when running 
126
Documentation to Include:
127
- schematics of the system
128
- a list of associated checklists at power on, and who works through them.
129
- a list of instructions to shifters on how to operate and monitor the system
130
- emergency shutdown instructions
131
- power-up instructions
132
- trouble-shooting : what to watch for
133
- a list of regular maintenance and safety checks
134
135
A lot of this is almost certainly going to be a work in progress, but it would be good to get it started. At the very least the emergency shutdown and power on instructions and checklist should be available by end of the year.  We'll need a lot of this for the Jan 21st mock data run anyway.
