This United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) factsheet discusses actions taken to improve the safety and security of nuclear plants post-September 11, 2001. In addition to discussing coordination with Federal, State and local organizations, the factsheet states that "safety and security studies show that a radiological release affecting public health and safety is unlikely from a terrorist attack, including large commercial aircraft." Additionally, "time is available to protect the public in [an] unlikely event of a radiation release."
