Radiological emergency planning is used to mitigate the effects of events such as a release at a nuclear power plant, the detonation of an improvised nuclear device, or an explosion involving a radiological dispersal device (dirty bomb). While these types of emergencies are rare, they have the potential for devastating and widespread harm. Minimizing the likelihood of harm to the public requires a thorough and well-designed radiological emergency plan.
Radiological Emergency Planning: Terrorism, Security, and Communication brings together leaders in radiation protection and emergency management to provide you with skills and strategies to effectively plan for radiological emergencies. As a participant, you will learn to prepare for, respond to, and mitigate the effects of radiological emergencies at the federal, state, local, or individual facility level. This program is unique in bringing together stakeholders from across agencies, functions, and backgrounds for an intensive look at effective planning for emergencies involving radioactive materials.
This program moves beyond the basics of emergency planning to provide skills and strategies for communicating about radiological emergencies, medically managing casualties of incidents involving radioactive material, and supporting other organizations during these crises.
