Over 88% of North Carolinians live within 50 miles of a nuclear power plant. Radiological equipment and materials are used in industrial and medical facilities
across our state every day, and are transported on our roads and railways. If a radiological emergency occurred, thousands of people may require monitoring and sheltering. Emergency management agencies will be overwhelmed - That's where REVC can help!
The Radiological Emergency Volunteer Corps (REVC) is a group of trained volunteers who are prepared to respond to radiological emergencies in North Carolina. In the event such an emergency, they will assist with setting up and/or operating population monitoring points at community reception centers. Our volunteers go through significant training to join REVC. Once they are approved, they can participate in drills and exercises to help test the abilities of emergency management agencies to respond to radiological emergencies and respond to actual incidents.
Volunteers receive free training, including:
- Basic Incident Command System (100/200/700)
- Health Physics Basics
- General Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP) Overview
- Reception Center Operations (PPE/dosimetry/population monitoring)
