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.
