On the seven-point International Nuclear Event Scale, the incident. Local and state governments, federal agencies, and the electric utilities have emergency response plans for nuclear power plant incidents that identify define two “emergency planning zones.” One zone covers an area within a mile radius of the plant, where it is possible that people could be harmed by direct radiation exposure.
