The first joint radiological emergency preparedness exercise for the Indian Point Nuclear Power Station (IPNS) was held on March 3, 1982, and two public meetings were held in June 1982 to acquaint the public with the plan contents, answer questions, and receive suggestions on the plans. A second joint exercise was conducted on March 9, 1983, and the post-exercise assessment was issued by FEMA Region 11 on April 14, 1983. An exercise of New York State's Interim Plan for implementing compensating measures for Rockland County was conducted on August 24-25, 1983, and the post-exercise assessment was issued by FEMA Region II on September 26, 1983. A third joint exercise was conducted on November 28, 1984, and the post-exercise assessment was issued by FEMA Region II on February 27, 1985. Following this full-scale exercise, a remedial exercise was held on April 10, 1985, to evaluate the implementation of corrective actions taken by the state and local governments. A fourth joint exercise was conducted on June 4, 1986. Following this full scale exercise, several remedial exercises were held between November 10, 1986, and December 3, 1986, for Westchester, Rockland, and Orange counties.
