From the Executive Summary: "On September 13, 2000, an exercise was conducted in the plume exposure pathway emergency planning zones (EPZ) around the Prairie Island Nuclear Generating Plant. The purpose of the exercise was to assess the level of State and local preparedness in responding to a radiological emergency. This exercise was held in accordance with the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) policies and guidance concerning the exercise of State and local Radiological Emergency Response Plans (RERP's) and procedures. [...] The State and local organizations, except where noted in this report, demonstrated knowledge of their emergency response plans and procedures and adequately implemented them. No Deficiencies were identified during this exercise. Four Areas Requiring Corrective Action (two for the State of Minnesota, one for the State of Wisconsin, and one for Pierce County) were identified during this exercise. There were three prior issues (two for the State of Minnesota and one for Pierce County). All prior issues were resolved during this exercise."
