|Report Title:||Nordic Nuclear Emergency Exercises|
|Authors:|| , Erling Stranden, Anneli Salo|
|Abstract:||This report describes two Nordic emergency exercises, engaging primarily decision makers in
the five countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden). The main objective was
to test and harmonize Nordic decision making in an emergency situation. Both exercises were
conducted simultaneously in all five countries.
In the first exercise, NORA, an acute-phase emergency situation was simulated, involving two
colliding naval vessels. The second exercise, ODIN, dealt with a late-phase fallout situation
following a reactor accident outside the Nordic region.
The practical organization of these two large regional exercises is described. Difficulties and
problems are discussed, and the evaluators' reports from the two exercises summarized.
Objectives, scenario, participating organizations, number of staff, necessary facilities and other
crucial issues are presented. The lessons learned from the Nordic exercise program, as
presented in this report, might serve as valuable input to future international exercises.|
