I'm from France. Your information is right. "Red alert" has been implemented to organize the rescue operation. It means all the rescue services can be put to work (firefighters (fire + EMS), SAMU (ALS with doctors), Red Cross & others...) and also "White alert" implemented in hospitals to delay scheduled surgeries, call medical staff back, clear beds in ER & other services.
Currently, 190 people treated, 6 dead, 8 criticals, 30 really injured, many in shock

About thefts... some young people were arrested for robering SAMU's cellphones and trying to do so on corpses, then stone throwing against police... this is also France...
