The Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program coordinates with State agencies, counties, and fixed nuclear facilities to ensure the safety of New York State residents.
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.
