Plans made for schoolchildren

Special care has been taken to protect schoolchildren. If an evacuation is ordered, there is an emergency plan for schoolchildren within the EPZ.

  • School officials will be contacted by local civil defense/emergency preparedness officials in the event of an emergency
  • The children will be assembled, accounted for and taken by bus to a Reception Center. All Reception Centers are more than 10 miles from the nuclear station. To find out which Reception Center your children will be taken to during an emergency, refer to the chart below or contact your local emergency preparedness office listed on the Emergency Contact Information page of this website.
  • Once school buses reach their assigned Reception Center, the children will be accounted for and cared for until their parents pick them up.
  • It is important that you do not try to pick up your children at their school. Go to the Reception Center where your children are located, using your evacuation route.

Whatever the situation, children in school during an emergency will be given top priority. They will be moved under close adult supervision.
