June 27, 2011

Entergy Nuclear, whose Vermont Yankee atomic reactor in Vernon is just six miles away, has donated over 500 emergency alert radios to the residents of Brattleboro, the town's newspaper has reported. The article focuses on weather and traffic related emergencies, but does not report if the systems would also work to alert residents to a radiological emergency involving the Vermont Yankee atomic reactor or its over 600 tons of stored high-level radioactive waste.
