Tabletop Manual (Instructions)


         Given a simulated radioactive materials transportation accident, applicable procedures, and map references, the objective of this tabletop is to demonstrate through participatory discussion, a working knowledge of the following emergency response and concept of operations elements:

    1. Concept of operations for the emergency response to a radioactive materials transportation accident, including the Unified Incident Command System utilized in the field.
    2. Initial and extended response of emergency personnel and the interface between these organizations and Federal and State Regulatory agencies (i.e., Environmental Protection Agency [EPA], Department of Transportation [DOT], and the appropriate State agency).
    3. Communications between the Incident Commander (IC) and the Emergency Operations Center (EOC).
