DEMHS: Radiological Emergency Preparedness

Radiological Emergency Preparedness


The Radiological Emergency Preparedness Unit within the Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security manages Connecticut's radiological emergency preparedness and response program.

The Connecticut Radiological Emergency Response Plan details the steps that would be taken to protect the public in response to an emergency situation at both Indian Point Nuclear Power Station in New York State and Millstone Nuclear Power Station in Waterford.  This plan is constantly under review and is exercised with local, state and federal agencies as well as the neighboring States of New York and Rhode Island.

Connecticut's radiological emergency plans, procedures and exercises are evaluated by the United States Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency.


The State of Connecticut ensures that the 10 communities around Millstone, the five Host Communities, the Transportation Staging Area, and support towns are continuously trained and have up to date plans and procedures on state and local Emergency Operations Centers and radiological monitoring.
