Since Monroe County is within the 10-mile EPZ (Emergency Planning Zone) of the Turkey Point Nuclear Power Plant, the Emergency Management Department must have a radiological preparedness plan to ensure for residents safety should an incident at the power plant occur. In addition to the Plan, the Emergency Management exercises and trains on regular basis, all county emergency responders whom who be called upon to respond in case of radiological emergency. This is being conducted in close coordination with Miami-Dade Emergency Management, Florida Power & Light, State Emergency Management and Department of Health.
