Radiation Emergency Response

This program deals with emergency response as it relates to nuclear power facilities. There is one nuclear power plant facility in Iowa and two on our immediate borders (one in Nebraska and one in Illinois). We also have some responsibility for the power facility located at Brownsville, NE, which is approximately 50 miles south of Omaha. We are funded for this activity through funds received by the Disaster Services Division of the Iowa Department of Public Defense from the nuclear power facilities.
