ABSTRACT

FEMA Fact Sheet: Radiological Accidents   [open pdf - 89KB]

This fact sheet discusses radiological accidents in terms of definition, prevention, reaction, and preparation. Radiological accidents can occur wherever radioactive materials are used, stored, or transported. In addition to nuclear power plants, hospitals, universities, research laboratories, industries, major highways, railroads, or shipping yards could be the site of a radiological accident. Distance, shielding, and time are the three ways to minimize exposure to your body.
