From the Executive Summary: "On March 23, 2011, a Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP) Partial Participation Plume Exposure Pathway Exercise evaluation was conducted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for the 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone (EPZ) around the Dresden Nuclear Power Station (DNPS). The purpose of the exercise was to assess the capabilities of the State and local preparedness in responding to a radiological emergency. This exercise was held in accordance with DHS/FEMA's policies and guidance concerning the exercise of State and local Radiological Emergency Response Plans (RERPs) and procedures. The most recent exercise at this site was conducted on March 25, 2009. [...] The State and local organizations demonstrated knowledge of and adequately implemented their emergency response plans and procedures. There were no Deficiencies identified during this exercise for the State of Illinois or the Counties of Grundy, Kendall, or Will. There were no new Areas Requiring Corrective Action (ARCAs) identified during this exercise for the State of Illinois, or the Counties of Grundy, Kendall, or Will. There was one ARCA from a previous exercise for the State of Illinois that was cleared. Criterion 5.b.1 - OROs [Offsite Response Organizations] provide accurate emergency information and instructions to the public and the news media in a timely manner - whereby the Joint Information Center did not provide to the media a complete EAS [Emergency Alert System] message; this criterion was successfully demonstrated during the Dresden Nuclear Power Station exercise."
