Radiological Emergency Response Plan (RERP)

The Radiological Emergency Response Plan (RERP) Program is the section of DEMHS responsible for planning, training, and response to an incident at the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Station in Vernon, VT. The RERP program employs seven full time and two part time staff.

The Vermont Radiological Emergency Response Plan (RERP) Program is federally mandated (44 CFR §350) to provide reasonable assurance that the public health and safety of the citizens living around the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Station are adequately protected in the event of a nuclear power station incident. The RERP Program provides guidance and procedures for state and local responders in the event of an accidental release of nuclear radiation. The RERP program also informs and educates the public about radiological emergency preparedness.
