Reuters reported yesterday:
Some U.S. nuclear plants are not in full compliance with rules set up after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States to respond to explosions and fires, a self-regulatory body for the nuclear industry has found.
The Institute of Nuclear Power Operations, or INPO, found issues with where plants store and place equipment, and said plants with more than one reactor need to improve their ability to respond to emergencies affecting all the units, the president of the U.S. nuclear trade group said on Tuesday.
Specifically, training is a problem:
After the September 11 attacks, U.S. nuclear plants were required to add equipment and train workers for how to handle intentional plane crashes at their sites.
The INPO review also found plants can improve training for staff and improve coordination for first responders and vendors
