EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT
It is DOE policy that all DOE facilities and activities be prepared to respond to operational
emergencies in a way that minimizes consequences to workers, the public and the
environment. Formal emergency management programs are the final element of DOE's
defense-in-depth against adverse consequences resulting from its operations.
9.1
EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT IN DOE
DOE Order 151.1 (DOE, 2000a) requires DOE elements and contractors to plan and
prepare for the management of emergencies. The following discussion of emergency
management principles, requirements and guidance is generally applicable to DOE
plutonium facilities. Specific facility requirements are in accordance with the individual
facility DOE contract.
9.1.1
Key Emergency Management Principles
DOE emergency management policy and direction is based on four key principles:
planning and preparedness commensurate with hazards; integrated planning for
health, safety and environmental emergencies; classification of and graded
response to emergencies, and; multiple levels (tiers) of emergency management
responsibility.
NOTE ON TERMINOLOGY: Within the EMS, "planning" includes the
development of emergency plans and procedures and the identification of personnel
and resources necessary to provide an effective response. "Preparedness" is the
procurement and maintenance of resources, training of personnel, and exercising of
the plans, procedures, personnel and resources. "Response" is the implementation
of the plans during an emergency to mitigate consequences and to effect recovery.
(a)
Planning and Preparedness Commensurate with Hazards. Because of the
wide range of activities and operations under DOE's authority, standards and
criteria suited to one type of facility or hazard may be inappropriate for
another. To deal with this diversity, while assuring an adequate overall state
of preparedness, DOE Orders specify standards for the structure and features
of emergency management plans and require that the details of each feature
be tailored to the unique hazards of the specific facility. This approach
ensures a more complete and quantitative understanding of the hazards while
providing for focused and cost-effective emergency planning and
preparedness.
(b) Integrated Planning for Health, Safety and Environmental Emergencies.
A wide variety of different types of operational emergencies can occur at
DOE operations. Some may involve loss of control over radioactive or other
hazardous materials unique to DOE operations, while others may involve
security, transportation activities, natural phenomena impacts, environmental
damage, or worker safety and health concerns. Planning, preparedness and
response requirements for some types of emergency conditions are specified
by other agencies having authority over DOE facilities and activities. For
example, Federal regulations on occupational safety, environmental
protection and hazardous waste operations have consequent "emergency
