Book: Nuclear Emergency Planning and Response by Keith Pearce

Book coverI have just published a revised and much expanded version of my nuclear emergency response book. It now covers the wider UK nuclear industry with some comparisons to approaches in other countries. It looks at risk assessment, plan scoping, concept of operations, radiation protection, dose limits, the planning community, response and recovery. It mentions REPPIR-19 a few times.

This was a lockdown project, started when I found that my workload had significantly dwindled. It was not written with any group in mind but may be of interest to planners, responders and regulators in industry, local authorities and the emergency services.

It is printed in black and white which allows the cost to be kept down to £12 of which £3 goes to me as the author. I shall be donating my share to the Prince’s Trust since I believe that while lockdown has done me little damage, we need to give some extra help to those transitioning from education to work in these unusual times and the Trust will be far better at that than me.

I would be grateful for feedback if anybody does read it. Being “print on demand” It is quite easy to squash typos if they are pointed out and more chunky revisions are not too much of a problem.
