The objective of this publication is to provide practical guidance for those responding within the first few hours of a radiological emergency. This includes the emergency service personnel who would initially respond at the local level and the national officials who would support this early response.
Its aim is to provide practical guidance for those who will respond during the first few hours to a radiological emergency (referred to here as ‘first responders’) and for national officials who would support this early response.
It provides guidance in the form of action guides, instructions, and supporting data that can be easily applied by a State to build a basic capability to respond to a radiological emergency. This guidance should be adapted to fit the user State’s organizational arrangements, language, terminology, concept of operation and capabilities.
