Entergy's unrelenting commitment to nuclear safety extends beyond the plant’s boundaries. Palisades has a detailed plan for responding in the unlikely event of an emergency that could affect the public. We test the plan regularly with the participation of local and state response organizations. As part of this constant state of readiness, information booklets about emergency planning are updated and sent to residents within a 10 mile radius of Palisades every year. Read more in the 2012-2013 Palisades Emergency Preparedness booklet.
At Entergy, there is no higher priority than operating our power plants safely. This responsibility also includes preparing for the unlikely event of a nuclear emergency. Working closely with national, state and local emergency management agencies, Entergy's nuclear plants have developed detailed emergency plans that address actions to be taken to protect the health and safety of the public up to 50 miles from any one of our plants. These plans are practiced routinely with oversight from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
