The operators of the Seabrook Nuclear Power Station in New Hampshire have created an online survey to assist them in updating emergency plans in the unlikely event of an incident at the plant. The information gathered will also be shared with local and state emergency management officials to assist with preparedness planning. This survey is part of Seabrook Station’s emergency planning which is required by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission which licenses and regulates Seabrook Station.
The short survey asks residents in Newburyport, Amesbury, Salisbury, Newbury, Merrimac, and West Newbury about evacuation, how they would leave if asked to do so by public safety officials, and the estimated time needed to evacuate. The anonymous survey also asks questions about basic demographics and emergency alert preferences. The six communities listed above comprise the Massachusetts cities and towns in the 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone for Seabrook Station.
The survey, available in English and Spanish, will be open for responses until August 31st.
