Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program – Hostile Action Based Drills
REP Exercise Scenario and Security Incident Preparedness Enhancements
Following the events of September 11, 2001, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) reviewed the emergency preparedness basis for commercial Nuclear Power Plants (NPP) to assess whether the program could adequately address hostile action contingencies (e.g., terrorist attacks), given the programmatic basis on accidental releases. The NRC determined that potential radiological exposure to the public during a hostile action based (HAB) incident is no more severe than in other accident sequences considered in the radiological emergency preparedness basis. However, the NRC and FEMA recognized that HAB incidents could present unique challenges to emergency preparedness programs because they differ from the accident-initiated incidents for which licensees and Offsite Response Organizations (ORO) typically plan, train and exercise.
