The objective of the Federal Radiological Emergency Response Plan (FRERP) is to establish an organized and integrated capability for timely, coordinated response by Federal agencies to peacetime radiological emergencies. The FRERP: provides the Federal Government's concept of operations based on specific authorities for responding to radiological emergencies; outlines Federal policies and planning considerations on which the concept of operations of this Plan and Federal agency specific response plans are based; and specifies authorities and responsibilities of each Federal agency that may have a significant role in such emergencies. There are two Sections in this Plan. Section I contains background, considerations, and scope. Section II describes the concept of operations for response.
