T3 Setting a Course for the Future of Emergency Preparedness

The future of emergency preparedness (EP) is here. As the NRC is preparing a final rule on EP for small modular reactors and other new technologies, the agency is holding discussions with applicants that intend to be among the first to use the new risk-informed, performance-based EP framework when it is published. This session will feature a panel of subject matter experts from the NRC, FEMA and the DOE to discuss navigating the future of EP. Topics for discussion will include application of the established planning basis for EP to future technologies, how the NRC uses our state-of-the-art consequence analysis tools to risk-inform our EP regulations and guidance, and how modern probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) can provide insights on the spectrum of accidents used to inform EP and appropriately size emergency planning zones.
