Take Action: Day Care Emergency Plan Petition

25 years after after... TMI Unit-2 periodically releases small amounts of radiation to the Susquehanna River. It is uncertain how much uranium and other radioisotopes remain inside.

Join TMI Alert

Please send comments to the NRC in support of TMIA's Petition asking the NRC to amend its regulations regarding emergency preparedness.
We are asking the NRC to require that all host school pick-up centers be at a minimum distance of five to ten miles beyond the radiation plume exposure boundary zone to ensure that all school children are protected in the event of a radiological emergency.
Eric Epstein, Chairman, TMI-Alert
