Emergency Planning Zone
The area approximately 10 miles around the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station is called the Emergency Planning Zone. Plans have been developed for warning and protecting people within the 10-mile area.
Communities in the Emergency Planning Zone are: Plymouth, Kingston, Duxbury, and portions of Carver and Marshfield.
The Emergency Planning Zone is divided into sub-areas. Official emergency instructions will be given for specific sub-areas. It is important to know your sub-area and follow instructions for that specific area.
