b. For other spills:
Stop or secure the operation causing the spill, if it can be done safely
Warn others in the area and notify Radiological Control personnel
Isolate the spill area, if possible
Minimize individual exposure and contamination
Secure unfiltered ventilation (fan, open windows, etc.)
C. Considerations in Rescue and Recovery Operations
1. In extremely rare cases, emergency exposure to high levels of radiation may be
necessary. This is done to rescue personnel or protect major property.
2. Rescue and recovery operations that involve radiological hazards can be very complex.
3. The type of response to these operations is generally left up to the official in charge of
the emergency situation. The official's judgment is guided by many variables that
include determining the risk versus the benefit of an action and deciding how best to
implement the action.
4. No individual shall be required to perform a rescue action that might involve substantial
personal risk. All personnel selected to provide emergency response shall be trained
commensurate with the hazards in the area and required controls. They shall be briefed
beforehand on the known or anticipated hazards to which they shall be subjected.
5. The DOE guidelines for control of Emergency Exposure are as follows:
