What to do
It is necessary to point out that not all accidents that occur in nuclear plants cause radiation to be released into the atmosphere. The nuclear event may be contained inside the plant and pose no risks to the population.
For this reason, in the event of an accident, it is important to listen to television reports and to local radio stations. Local authorities will provide specific information and instructions.
The warnings will depend on the nature of the emergency, the speed of its development and on the quantity of radiation that threatens to spread.
