FTPC checklist

to be completed at the beginning of each shift

Checks relative to the gas system should be performed in the gas mixing room and on the gas platform. Checks relative to the cooling system should be performed by watching the camera images at the STAR monitoring computer. Images are from north platform, position ''L2'' and ''L3''.
