Radiation Response for Volunteers
Why do we need radiological response capabilities?
A nuclear/radiological incident may result from a deliberate act or an accident. Georgia and Alabama are home to nuclear power plants as well as industrial and medical facilities where radioactive materials are in use. In addition, we are home to major transportation hubs. While it’s clear we would need to respond to any incident directly impacting our own population, incidents affecting other places, like Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant, may bring potentially contaminated individuals to our doorstep.
*Types of events we are at risk for regarding radiation
*Experience with radiation survey equipment and decontamination procedures
*Psychological impacts that an event may have on affected individuals
*How to volunteer to prepare and assist for an event

necessity of heart surgery which was done this morning. I am told that
his condition now immediately “post op” is good, but he is, of course,
in intensive care. We will all keep Jim and his family in our thoughts
and prayers. We hope he will be back in the saddle soon. Brings us to
the reminder that amateur radio is just a big extended family who
