Nuclear Response Plan
The detonation of a 10-kiloton improvised nuclear device will prompt the most complex response the nation has ever experienced. This Plan gives emergency managers a framework to handle the complexity of a nuclear device detonation by defining seven key actions for the response and developing procedures and objectives to execute each of these actions to bring order from chaos. They are: 1) Sound the Alarm, 2) Find the Plume, 3) Turn Everything On, 4) Execute in the Field, 5) Execute in the EOC, 6) Execute Regionally, 7) Execute Strategy. These actions are rooted in the tools that are best used to handle chaos: coordination, communication and effective management.
