    Article, Communication - En anglais

    International Workshop on Real-time Computing of the Environmental Consequences of an Accident Release from a Nuclear Installation. Aronsborg (SWE), 1996/10/07.

    Under the Federal Radiological Emergency Response Plan (FRERP), the Federal Radiological Monitoring and Assessment Center (FRMAC) coordinates all federal off-site radiological assistance to state and local governments in the event of a major radiological emergency in the United States.

    In response to a major radiological emergency, the FRMAC is established by the US Department of Energy to coordinate all federal assets involved in conducting a comprehensive programme of environmental monitoring, sampling, radioanalysis, quality assurance, and dose assessment.

    This programme includes :

    • (i) aerial radiological monitoring - fixed-wing and helicopter ;

    • (ii) field monitoring and sampling ;

    • (iii) radioanalysis mobile and institutional laboratories ;

    • (iv) radiation detection instrumentation calibration and maintenance ;

    • (v) environmental dosimetry ;

    • and (vi) integrated programme of Quality Assurance.

    The structure, assets, and operations of the FRMAC programme are discussed.
