BYRON, Ill. – Exelon Generation mailed more than 23,000 public information emergency planning brochures to all residents and businesses located within 10 miles of its Byron nuclear facilities.
The brochure contains information about general emergency preparedness, including reception center locations, evacuation routes, a map, and a listing of emergency alert broadcast stations. The brochure includes a special needs card to be completed and returned by people who may have a special transportation or other need.
Exelon’s nuclear facilities are robust. They have multiple physical barriers and layers of backup safety systems to ensure safe operations, even in extreme events such as floods, tornadoes and earthquakes. Exelon Generation has dedicated teams of emergency planning experts at each of its nuclear facilities who work with state, county and local emergency management officials in the development, maintenance, training and testing of emergency response plans.
