The earthquake and tsunami at the Fukushima Nuclear Plant in Japan in March 2011 reinforced the need for comprehensive emergency response capability for highly unlikely radiological events that have the potential to harm the public, workers, or the environment.  In the three years since the events at Fukushima, nuclear facilities in every country have conducted systematic reviews of their readiness to respond to an emergency and capability has been enhanced. Fire protection has always been a major component of nuclear emergency response and reviews continue to provide insights into how these resources can best be deployed to reduce public risk.  

Many of the lessons learned from the post-Fukushima reviews will be captured in new and revised international standards (WANO, IAEA) and Canadian regulatory documents (CNSC, CSA).   The 1st CNS Technical Meeting on Fire Safety and Emergency Preparedness will provide a forum to communicate on challenges presently impacting the nuclear industry and share lessons learned from reviews, drills, and major exercises. 

FSEP-2015 is intended to attract participants from all sectors of the nuclear industry that maintain formal emergency response plans and those municipal, provincial, and federal agencies that would provide support during an emergency.
