Description of Circumstances: 

As a result of the incident at the Sequoyah Fuels Corporation on January 4, 
1986, it was determined that some telephone numbers held by the licensee for
emergency notification and assistance were incorrect For example, the 
numbers for the NRC Region IV office and DOE emergency radiological 
assistance were incorrect In addition, the DOE number was improperly 
identified in the radiological contingency plan under a listing for NRC A 
preliminary review of other contingency plans indicated that this situation 
is not unique to Sequoyah Fuels Corporation 


The following commercial telephone numbers are available for notification to
the NRC of incidents and reportable items during normal office hours
