Interview: Mark Bosma on the Vermont Yankee evacuation drill

Print More

Critics of the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant often cite among their dissatisfaction what they say are inadequate plans for evacuating people in the event of an emergency.

During a drill held last month there were reported problems with radios used to communicate between a field office and a staging area for buses used to take people out of the danger zone.

Mark Bosma is the Public Information Officer for the Vermont Emergency Management Agency and says, while it wasn’t perfection, things did go more smoothly this time around, when another drill was held yesterday.
