From the Executive Summary: "On October 22, 2003, seven congregate care centers in Clinton County, Iowa and six congregate care centers in Scott County, Iowa were evaluated for their acceptability to support the evacuees around the Quad Cities Nuclear Power Station by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Region VII. [...] On October 23, 2003, a medical drill was conducted in the plume exposure pathway emergency planning zone (EPZ) around the Quad Cities Nuclear Power Station and evaluated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Region VII. The purpose of the medical drill was to assess the ability of offsite agencies in responding to a radiological emergency involving a simulated medical injury to a member of the public with radioactive contamination. This medical drill was held in accordance with FEMA's policies and guidance concerning the exercise of State and local radiological emergency response plans and procedures. [...] There were no Areas Requiring Corrective Action, identified during the previous Quad Cities Nuclear Power Station congregate care drills that required corrective action or subsequent demonstration for reevaluation during this drill. The offsite agencies demonstrated knowledge of their emergency response plans and procedures and adequately implemented them. There were no Deficiencies or Areas Requiring Corrective Action identified during these drills."
