Intoxicated crew, including pilots, should be ordered to stop whatever ballooning activity they are currently participating in. The Safety Officer can take whatever action he feels appropriate and should immediately inform the Event Director.

If there is need for independent documentation, medical treatment or if otherwise deemed necessary, police or emergency services will be asked for assistance.
