From the Letter: "This letter officially informs you of the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) identification of a Deficiency which occurred during the Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant Radiological Emergency Preparedness Exercise conducted on August 29, 2007. This issue was discussed during the post-exercise participants' briefing on August 30, 2007. The Deficiency is being assessed against Hood County under Evaluation Area Criterion 2.c.1. - Protective Action Decisions for Special Populations. The Hood County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) staff failed to identify mobility impaired, special needs, hearing impaired and/or transportation dependent individuals living in the recommended evacuated zones when the protective action decisions were made during the exercise. [...] Because of the potential impact on public health and safety, this situation should be corrected within 120 days of the exercise date through appropriate remedial actions."
