BARNSTABLE AND THE PILGRIM NUCLEAR POWER PLANT: WHAT RESIDENTS SHOULD KNOW – Join us for an interactive panel conversation

Hyannis, MA: Join us April 8, at the Barnstable Senior Center in Hyannis, from 7 to 9pm for a panel discussion about the emergency and safety issues and procedures for Cape Codders.

Our local newspapers regularly feature stories about problems with the aging Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant in Plymouth. Many Cape Cod residents want to see it close, while others in the Plymouth area believe it is an important source of employment. But what about the real safety issues? It is located on the other side of the Sagamore Bridge, so we wonder how we evacuate when it seems evacuation means heading closer to danger.

While the debate about the plant’s future continues, here on Cape Cod we often ask each other, “What are we going to do if there is a disaster at the nuclear power plant in Plymouth?” “Where do we go?” “How do we get there?”

Spent nuclear fuel stored underwater and uncapped at the Hanford site in Washington, USA.

And, many of us wonder about the risks. What are the real dangers? Are we within range of exposures here Cape Cod? What is the range of the exposure? How can we protect ourselves? What is the recent legislation filed that addresses some of these issues? How would it help?

Our panel discussion is designed to address these issues and will provide for audience questions after the presentation. There is no cost for attendance.

This is a non-partisan issue and a non-partisan discussion. This is not about politics, it’s about all of our safety. We all have to play our part in securing change.

The panel will be moderated by the Hon Robert O’Leary.
