Exelon Generation Mails Annual Emergency Preparedness Brochures to Byron Residents

Exelon Generation, owner of the nation’s largest nuclear power fleet, mailed more than 23,000 public information emergency planning brochures to residents and businesses within 10 miles of its Byron nuclear facility.

BYRON, Ill. — Exelon Generation, owner of the nation’s largest nuclear power fleet, mailed more than 23,000 public information emergency planning brochures to residents and businesses within 10 miles of its Byron nuclear facility.

The informative brochure contains facts about general emergency preparedness, including reception center locations, evacuation routes, a map, and a list 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.

“Residents around Byron Station have never had to use these brochures, but they are a good resource in the unlikely event of an emergency at our facility,” said Byron Station Site Vice President Mark Kanavos.

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.  

Federal law requires nuclear operating companies to develop emergency response plans for their nuclear energy facilities and to ensure evacuation plans are in place. State and county agencies often use the plans for non-nuclear related emergencies such as extreme weather events or fires.

Anyone within the 10-mile radius of the three facilities who did not receive a brochure in the mail may download a copy at:  www.exeloncorp.com/byron.  Join us on Twitter and You Tube.
