If there is a nuclear emergency at V.C. Summer Nuclear Station, farmers should be prepared to take the following actions:

  • Monitor and follow instructions given over the Emergency Alert System. Specific recommendations for the protection of farm animals and agricultural products will be issued by appropriate state and county officials.
  • Remove all dairy animals from pasture, shelter if possible and provide them with stored feed and protected water. Protected self-feeders and automatic livestock waterers are the most effective.
  • Store feed in buildings or cover it if outdoors. Feed stored in buildings will be protected from contamination. Keep radioactive particles out of other feed by covering the feed with plastic or canvas.
  • Cover open wells and water tanks.
