Protecting the Public During a Nuclear Power Reactor Emergency

This training course strengthens Member States’ capacity to make effective decisions regarding public protective actions in the event of an emergency involving actual or projected severe fuel damage in a light water reactor or spent fuel pool. It is based on the IAEA publication Actions to Protect the Public in an Emergency due to Severe Conditions at a Light Water Reactor (EPR-NPP PPA 2013).

The course targets decision-makers, local and facility emergency planners, emergency response coordinators and emergency managers.

The five-day programme focuses on how to make decisions to protect the public, using nuclear power plant conditions and environmental measurements made after a release of radioactive material as a basis. It also looks at ways to help the public understand the radiological health hazard.

Member States desiring training in this area should send an official request to the IAEA Incident and Emergency Centre .
