This section provides an introduction to the contents of this chapter based on the
graded approach and includes objectives and scope specific to the chapter as
This section lists the design codes, standards, regulations, and DOE Orders that are
required for establishing the safety basis of the facility. The intent is to provide
only the requirements that are specific for this chapter and pertinent to the safety
analysis, and not a comprehensive listing of all industrial standards or codes or
criteria. SRIDs may be referenced as appropriate.
15.3 SCOPE OF EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS
This section summarizes the spectrum of emergencies that the EPP is designed to
encompass. Focus discussions on demonstrating that emergency preparedness
planning adequately encompasses the facility hazards discerned in the hazard
analysis. Use of bounding categories of emergencies (i.e., fire, spills, crit icality)
and bounding consequences from emergencies should be sufficient for
documenting the scope of emergency preparedness.
15.4 EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS PLANNING
This section summarizes facility emergency preparedness planning. The summary
should include activation of emergency organizations, assessment actions,
notification processes, emergency facilities and equipment, protective actions,
training and exercises, and recovery actions.
Emergency Response Organization
This section summarizes the eme rgency response organization that is activated
in case of onsite and offsite operational emergencies. Delineate authorities and
responsibilities of key individuals and groups, and identify the communication
chain for notifying, alerting, and mobilizing the necessary personnel. Identify
the position of the person with the overall responsibility for directing
emergency responses. This summary may be provided in this chapter or
Chapter 17, "Management, Organization, and Institutional Safety Provisions."
Describe interrelationships with federal, state, tribal, and local organizations
for offsite emergency response and for the protection of the environment and
the public. Briefly summarize and reference any prearranged plans,
agreements, understandings, and/o r other arrangements for mutual assistance
