Radiological Incident Response and Advisory Assistance

DHS prepares for and responds to emergencies involving radioactive materials other then nuclear power plant origin.  In the event of a radiological emergency, DHS staff works with local first responders, local government, other state governments and federal agencies to protect the citizens of Wisconsin and their property from the radiological hazard. 

In addition to responding to incidents involving radioactive materials, DHS staff can also provide advisory assistance on issues involving radioactive materials, and conduct radiological training for first responders.
