To save time and avoid confusion during an emergency, there are a few pieces of information that will help you and your family be prepared. Print out the Important Emergency Information Worksheet and keep it where you will be able to find it when it counts.
- In which subarea do you live? Use the map to find the subarea in which you live. It is not likely that everyone within 10 miles of the Turkey Point Nuclear Power Plant would be affected during an emergency. The area affected would depend on weather conditions, such as wind speed, direction and the severity of the incident. Knowing your subarea will help you identify how best to protect yourself and your family.
- Where is your reception center? Reception centers are available to provide food, shelter and communications during an emergency.
- What is your best evacuation route? Evacuation routes are outlined on the map and detailed below. Familiarizing yourself with the evacuation route now will help reduce stress during an emergency. In the event of an evacuation, emergency public transportation will be provided to those that need assistance. Contact your local emergency management agency to pre-register.
