ABSTRACT

Turkey Point Nuclear Power Plant [February 19, 2003]   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Executive Summary: "On February 19,2003, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Region IV, conducted a partial participation plume exposure pathway exercise in the emergency planning zone (EPZ) around the Turkey Point Nuclear Power Plant. The purpose of the exercise was to assess the level of State and local preparedness in responding to a radiological emergency. [...] The State and local organizations, except where noted, demonstrated knowledge of their emergency response plans and procedures and adequately implemented them. No Deficiencies were identified during this exercise; however, there were four Areas Requiring Corrective Action (ARCA) identified during this exercise. One ARCA regarded the timeliness of activation of the public alert and notification system. Two ARCAs concerned the fact that the initial EAS messages did not include the minimum information specified in the September 12, 2001 Federal Register Notice. The fourth ARCA was issued to Miami-Dade due to the signage in some of the parks in the County."
