The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Evacuation plans – Dr Ian Fairlie

Beyond Nuclear International 4th March 2018,  Dr Ian Fairlie: If another severe nuclear accident, such as Windscale (in
1957), Chernobyl (1986) or Fukushima (2011) were to occur, then the most
important response, in terms of preventing future cancer epidemics, is
evacuation. The other main responses are shelter and stable iodine
prophylaxis. Adverse health effects would primarily depend on wind
direction and on the nature of the accident. This article looks primarily
at the Fukushima evacuation and its after-effects.
