Radiological Emergency Management

RSSI's professionals are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year to provide expert guidance and manpower in emergencies.  Our main objective in a radiological emergency situation is to minimize the risk of contamination to workers and the public.  RSSI is prepared to respond to emergency situations with all necessary personal protective equipment, tools, and equipment necessary to contain and clean up and prevent the spread of contamination.  We use the appropriate radiation survey instruments to ensure that all contamination is detected and can be mitigated.

Emergency response activities have included management of contamination in cast iron consumer products, radioactive contamination of scrap, and contamination of processing facilities where there was the potential for uptake of radioactive material by humans.  RSSI has also handled incidents involving worker contamination, lost radioactive materials, and spills of radioactive liquid.

Radiological emergency management may also require public communication and crisis management.

Phones are staffed 24 hours a day at 847-965-1999 to respond to emergencies.
