The report describes an exercise that demonstrated an emergency response and source recovery operation involving the private sector, county government and state government, utilizing federal assistance from multiple federal agencies. The federal assistance was provided under the National contingency Plan (NCP) using the notification and communications procedures as described in the Federal Radiological Emergency Response Plan (FRERP). The FRERP identifies the EPA as the Lead Federal Agency (LFA) under certain circumstances. These circumstances include events where radioactive materials licensed by the NRC are involved but the identify of the licensee is unknown. This designation from the FRERP was used as a model in this simulated NCP response. The report shows how such a response would be conducted, and may be useful for training in emergency response and as a blueprint for future exercises of similar nature.
