It’s important to know which Emergency Planning Zone (EPZ) you are in, because this will help you understand where to go in the event of an emergency. Check the map for the nuclear plant in your area and locate the zones where you live, work and/or go to school. In the event of an emergency, officials will announce specific instructions for zones. If there was an emergency at the nuclear station, it is unlikely everyone within the 10-mile EPZ would be affected. The areas affected would depend on weather conditions and the nature of the emergency.
