Testing Communication Systems cont'd


DOE-STD-1031-92
4.4.4
Dial Telephones
Dial telephones, those used for normal telephone communication, are an
acceptable form of facility communications. Since telephone lines already exist in
most facilities, spending additional money to install extra systems may not be
needed. One drawback to standard telephone systems is that they are normally
point-to-point systems and, if an emergency announcement is needed to be made,
the sender may get a busy signal. Alternate emergency communication devices
should be used to preclude this situation.

Emergency Communication Systems
The facility emergency communication system should ensure that all personnel can
be promptly alerted to facility emergencies. The public address system should
normally be used to make emergency announcements. Alternate methods, such as
flashing lights, personal pagers, and individuals dedicated to notifying in person
should be used to alert personnel in high-noise areas. The emergency
communications system should also allow personnel from any point in the facility to
make emergency communications to the control area. Designated facility telephone
numbers should be established to report concerns or problems. Numbers should
be easy to remember, such as:
111
(Security problem)
222
(Radiological concern)
333
(Fire, personnel injury, abnormal or emergency operational condition.
Channel 3 on the public address system, while normally used for
operations, may also be used for emergency communications.)
Direct telephone communication lines should be provided between the control area
and the emergency response facilities to improve emergency response to
accidents. These communication links should only be used during a declared
emergency event, during authorized testing, or when authorized by the shift
supervisor. Specific guidance for the use of these communication links should be in
the site emergency plan and implementing procedures.
4.6
Testing Communication Systems
Policies and procedures should address testing of communication systems. At a
minimum, emergency communication systems should be tested periodically to
ensure that they are operable. Although, it is advisable to periodically test all
communication systems. Testing periodicity for certain emergency communication
