U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. (2017). PAG Manual: Protective Action Guides and Planning Guidance for Radiological Incidents.
This manual can help public officials plan for emergency response to radiological incidents. The manual consists of two overarching response areas: protective action guides, and protective actions which are further broken down into early, intermediate, and late phase response actions for radiological incidents. Each phase describes corresponding response actions (e.g., evacuation, sheltering in place, administration of medication, worker protection, and clean up, and disposal of radiological waste).
