HKNIC - Emergency Preparedness

Emergency Preparation
Although the risk of a nuclear accident affecting the public is very low, planning for an emergency at a nuclear power station for the protection of the public is an important aspect of nuclear safety. At Daya Bay, contingency plans have been prepared for different levels of emergency, each with the appropriate level of response. A system is in place to notify the authorities in Hong Kong, which itself maintains a radiation monitoring network to detect any anomalies and has its own emergency planning.
