Resources to Help You Prepare for a Radiation Emergency
MRC units may be called upon to help protect the health and safety of the populations they serve following a radiological event. In addition, jurisdictions may be asked to monitor, decontaminate, and shelter displaced populations that evacuate to their region from impacted areas in the event of a large-scale radiological event. Access a number of resources to help you prepare for a radiation emergency.
