At Providence, RI

Northern Lights 2016 Exercise — A Nuclear Power Plant Accident
Hosted by the Association of Public Health Laboratories
4 – 5:30 PM Providence, RI

The Northern Lights Department of Energy led, multi-agency, full scale exercise was designed to test the radiological consequence management issues three weeks after a nuclear power plant accident in Minnesota. One of its primary objectives was to exercise “end-to-end” laboratory analysis processes. The Minnesota state laboratory and state laboratories in the Food Emergency Response Network as well as other federal laboratories had the opportunity to analyze realistic fresh fission product samples that would be generated by this type of event. Attendees will hear lessons learned from state and federal participants.
