If you live in Kewaunee County or Manitowoc counties you are being asked to fill out a survey that will be used for emergency planning. The survey’s purpose is to identify how people respond during emergency situations with no prior warning. This includes emergencies related to wildlife, chemical spills, or a radiological event. Kewaunee County residents are being asked to fill it out because of their proximity to the Point Beach Nuclear Plant that sits in Manitowoc County.
Kewaunee County Emergency Management Director Tracy Nollenberg says the information they are asking for is something gathered about every ten years to help perform an evacuation time study.
NextEra Energy, the owners of the plant, are aiming to get at least 450 participants in the survey which Nollenberg says should take you just a few minutes, and could be life-saving.
