The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently published two companion documents to the EPA’s Protective Action Guide (PAG) Manual that will help emergency responders prepare public communication materials prior to and during a radiological emergency. These communication materials are based on the safety measures in the PAG Manual, and are designed to be used in all types of radiological emergencies.
- Protective Action Area Map Templates
- Protective Action Questions & Answers for Radiological and Nuclear Emergencies: A companion document to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Protection Action Guide (PAG) Manual
- Communicating Radiation Risks: Crisis Communications for Emergency Responders. (Released September 2007)
These PAG Manual companion documents complement several other resources available from the federal government, including:
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) radiation emergency infographics.
- The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA’s) Improvised Nuclear Device Response and Recovery: Communicating in the Intermediate Aftermath.
- FEMA's Communicating During and After a Nuclear Power Plant Incident.
