Radiological Preparedness Documents and Links

Overview

The New York State Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP) Program coordinates with various State DPC agencies, nuclear counties, and fixed site nuclear power plants to ensure the safety of its residents. The REP Program maintains the Radiological Hazards Annex for Fixed Nuclear Facilities to the NYS CEMP to support the program procedures and provides radiation emergency information for New York State residents and for the agricultural community.

Radiological Hazards Annex for Fixed Nuclear Facilities

The purpose of the New York State Radiological Hazards Annex for Fixed Nuclear Facilities is to minimize the health risk of the State's residents in the event of a radiological emergency – an accident at a nuclear power plant that may result in the loss of control of a radiation source.  Please note that the Plan is redacted for the public.

Nuclear Facilities

New York State has four commercially licensed fixed site nuclear power plants that contain six nuclear reactors.

The sites are located at Indian Point in Westchester County; Nine Mile Point/James A. Fitzpatrick in Oswego County; and R.E. Ginna in Wayne County.

The NYS REP Program assists counties to meet the public health and safety concerns of the people living within the 10-mile emergency planning zones.
