Although Hanford`s experience has been without a serious radiation event as characterized in this report, it is prudent to have an objective assessment of the capabilities which do exist and an analysis of the general capabilities which the plant should possess to maximize the effectiveness of rescue action in such an event and to limit the consequences to personnel, vital equipment, and the surrounding environs. It in the purpose of this report to: (1) make an assessment of the capabilities which are currently in place at Hanford to handle the multitude of serious problems arising from a serious radiation event; and (2) define the level of capability which the Hanford Atomic Products Operation should possess to minimize the consequences of such an accident. It is not the intent of this presentation to discuss the possibilities, probabilities, prevention or courses of serious radiation events.
