VT’s Evacuation Plan

The letter below, by the Safe and Green Campaign, was co-signed by 80 citizens who live in the shadow of Vermont Yankee. You can read the full letter here on our Action page. Vermont Emergency Management has a website for the Vermont’s Radiological Emergency Response plan here.

Dear Governor Shumlin,

Thank you for your efforts to protect Vermonters from the hazards created by the operation of Vermont Yankee and the unscrupulous business practices of Entergy Corporation.

In 2010, we delivered into your hands a petition signed by 1,656 residents living within 20 miles of Vermont Yankee. Our petition said, in part, “We are tired of being asked to believe that evacuation plans will actually work. We ask that you imagine hearing the evacuation sirens go off and knowing that you will be separated from your children, that roads will be clogged, that there will be panic. “

It has been brought to our attention that, as Governor, you are required to sign a letter approving the state evacuation plan for Vermont Yankee by January 31st. We write to ask you not to sign off on the current Radiological Emergency Response Plan. Continue reading
