Criteria for Preparation and Evaluation of Radiological Emergency Response Plans and Preparedness in Support of Nuclear Power Plants: NUREG-0654/FEMA-REP-1, Rev.1., Supplement 4: Criteria for National Preparedness Initiative Integration, Exercise Enhancement, and Backup Alert and Notification Systems [open pdf - 552KB]
"The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) jointly issue this Supplement 4 to NUREG-0654/FEMA-REP-1, Rev. 1 to provide additional guidance for the development, review, and evaluation of offsite radiological emergency response planning and preparedness surrounding the Nation's commercial nuclear power plants (NPPs). This guidance addresses four emerging issues: (1) aligning the offsite Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP) Program with national preparedness initiatives under Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD)-5 and Presidential Policy Directive (PPD)-8; (2) preparing for and responding to hostile action-based (HAB) incidents at NPPs; (3) enhancing scenario realism and reducing negative training and pre-conditioned responses of exercise participants; and (4) ensuring backup means are in place for alert and notification systems."
