Radiological Emergency Response
The Arkasnas Department of Health's Radiation Control colleagues are routinely involved in radiological emergency response. Each Section colleague has a role in the Department’s Radiological Emergency Response Team. The RERT is responsible for responding to potential off-site releases of radioactive material from ENTERGY’S Arkansas Nuclear One (ANO) reactors in Russellville, Arkansas. The Section coordinates with the Nuclear Planning and Response Program who is responsible for emergency planning as well as response to emergencies involving ANO.
Section Health Physicists are also prepared to respond to a variety of other radioactive material incidents within the State of Arkansas. These potential radiological events include transportation accidents, lost radioactive sources, and Radiological Dispersal Devices (“dirty bombs”), among others.
