Nuclear and radiation safety: Guidance for emergency response Criteria have been established at the international level to guide decisions about protective actions after a nuclear or radiological emergency involving radioactive materials in recent years have had consequences for the health of the general public. These have ranged. Concurrent with the early CDC EOC activities, from 21 March until 24 March , a group of participants and distinguished speakers attended the CDC-sponsored Bridging the Gaps: Public Health and Radiation Emergency Preparedness conference in Atlanta, Georgia. This conference had been planned for over 18 by: 9.

Blue Book: EPA Radiogenic Cancer Risk Models and Projections for the U.S. Population The EPA Radiogenic Cancer Risk Models and Projections for the U.S. Population, also known as the Blue Book, is the update of EPA's methodology for estimating cancer risks from radiation updates are based on the National Research Council's report, Biological Effects of Ionizing. This is the area around a facility for which the Radiation (Emergency Preparedness and Public Information) Regulations (REPPIR) requires the local authority to prepare a detailed off-site emergency plan with the purpose of restricting, so far as is reasonably practicable, public exposure in the event of a reasonably foreseeable radiation.

  a. Publish a program newsletter covering the scope of radiation control. b. Provide information on ionizing and non-ionizing radiation to the general public. If you have any questions, please contact the: Indoor and Radiological Health Branch Radiation Section Halawa Valley Street Aiea, HI Phone: () Fax: ()   EPA prepares for, and responds to, emergencies involving radioactive materials. EPA's Radiological Emergency Response Team (RERT) works with federal, state and local agencies to monitor radioactivity radioactivityThe emission of ionizing radiation released by a source in a given time period. The units used to measure radioactivity are curie (Ci) and becquerel (Bq).

CDC’s Crisis and Emergency Risk Communication (CERC) manual is based on psychological and communication sciences, studies in issues management, and practical lessons learned from emergency responses.

The CERC manual is intended for public health response officials and communicators who have a basic knowledge of public health communication.The Radiation (Emergency Preparedness and Public Information) Regulations are only briefly mentioned but this is appropriate considering these Regulations are unlikely to apply to many healthcare facilities.

Transport of radioactive materials is also covered only briefly—essentially by reference to the Regulations.
