The Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP) Program addresses commonwealth oversight of off-site preparedness in relation to incidents at the five nuclear power plants in Pennsylvania.

The REP staff within the Bureau of Plans is responsible:

  • For preparation, promulgation and distribution of Nuclear/Radiological Plan of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Emergency Operations Plan;
  • For ensuring appropriate state departments and agencies develop and maintain plans and procedures necessary to support responses to nuclear power plant incidents;
  • For reviewing and updating, in conjunction with the nuclear utility emergency planning/preparedness organizations, county, municipal and school district plans and procedures for incidents at nuclear power plants;
  • To ensure the commonwealth is prepared to respond to nuclear power plant incidents and to assist state agencies, counties, municipalities and school districts, in conjunction with utility emergency planning/preparedness organizations, in such preparation through drills and exercises;
  • To assist in programmatic reviews of associated grants; and for coordination of nuclear power incident response with federal, state, local and non-governmental agencies.
