Medical Center (FHMC) outside the Emergency Planning Zone (EPZ) surrounding the Diablo Canyon Power Plant (DCPP) on August 07, 2019. The purpose of the FHMC MS-1 exercise is to assess local emergency Offsite Response Organizations' (ORO) level of preparedness in response to a radiological incident occurring at DCPP. State, local, and tribal governments primarily are responsible for determining and implementing measures to protect life, property, and the environment in those areas surrounding the commercial nuclear power plants (NPP). Evaluated exercises play a vital role in national preparedness by enabling whole community stakeholders to test and validate plans and identify capability gaps.
