According to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), Japan’s nuclear emergency presents no danger to California. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) is working closely with our state and federal partners, including NRC, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of Energy, FEMA Region IX, and the California Emergency Management Agency (CalEMA).
California has a plan of response for radiological emergencies if one were to arise. Plans include the Nuclear Radiological Emergency Program and the National Response Framework.
