Good afternoon:

I am responding to questions from the public and was advised to send this one on to you – it’s from the state of Hawaii.

Thank you,

Amy

Holly:
Any idea how we should respond to this one? The person is from Hawaii state gov. I guess I could say that we are not the agency responsible for such screenings and leave it there, but want to make sure there isn’t something I am missing.

Thanks,
Amy

Jeff,

NRC does not have a take on this concern as we are not the agency responsible for deciding whether or not to conduct such screenings. I will forward your question up to our Headquarters responders so that they may direct it to the appropriate group/agency.

Aloha, Bill!

Does NRC have any take on whether planes departing from Japan should be checked for radiation contamination? I’m not sure if you guys have received any calls yet, but we are getting inquiries. Contamination should be very low, if any and is also dependent upon where the aircraft departs from. I just wanted to make sure we are all on he same page and not sending out mixed messages. Please advise.
Thanks!
