Description (excerpt):


One of the major lessons to be learned from the Fukushima accident is the need to minimize overall public risks from nuclear incidents by modernizing emergency planning in the United States. This modernization should take place on an accelerated basis.

This report discusses emergency responses during the first few days after the start of a nuclear accident. Other emergency responses, such as the protection of food stuffs, are not included in this report.
