The potential danger from an accident at a nuclear power plant is exposure to radiation. This exposure could come from the release of radioactive material from the plant into the environment, usually characterized by a plume (cloud-like formation) of
radioactive gases and particles. The major hazards to people in the vicinity of the plume are radiation exposure to the body from the cloud and particles deposited on the ground, inhalation of radioactive materials, and ingestion of radioactive materials.
Review your five steps on your Pathways to Preparedness.
Residents south of Malabar Road are in the 50-mile radius of the St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant known as the Ingestion Pathway Zone. You may be advised to take actions to protect your family, pets, farm animals, and agricultural products.
