   With the start of an operation of the Belarusian Nuclear Power Plant (hereinafter – Belarusian NPP), a major nuclear accident in Belarusian NPP would be the greatest threat to Lithuania. In 2019, Radiation Protection Centre (hereafter – RSC) together with other responsible institutions, consistently and purposefully carried out preparedness to respond to such accident. Particular attention was paid to the preparedness to implement the functions that are prescribed to RSC in the State Plan of Public Protection in Case of Nuclear or Radiological Accident and to coordinate the preparedness of other institutions within competence.

   For this purpose the legal basis was strengthened: Lithuanian Hygiene Standard HN 99:2019 “Public Protection in Case of Nuclear or Radiological Accident”, Description of the Procedure for Preparation and Implementation of Radiation Survey Programs in Case of Nuclear or Radiological Accident and Recommendations for Decontamination of People in Case of Nuclear or Radiological Accident were approved.

   In order to spotlight the public on how to properly prepare and act in a case of a nuclear accident, RSC and Fire and Rescue Department under the Ministry of the Interior (hereinafter – PAGD) specialists organized meetings with residents who live closest to the Belarusian NPP – Švenčionys and Vilnius districts and Vilnius city municipality.

   An important part of preparedness to possible nuclear accidents is organization and participation in various levels of exercises. RSC took part in the organization and participated in the state level civil protection full-scale exercise “Actions of Civil Protection System Institutions in Case of Nuclear Accident at the Nuclear Power Plant at Territory of the Republic of Belarus”.

   The purpose of the full-scale exercise was to improve and practically implement the skills of the subjects of a civil protection system carrying out the functions that are provided in the State Plan of Public Protection in Case of Nuclear or Radiological Accident.

   During the exercise, RSC assessed the possible impact of the nuclear accident on the Lithuanian population. RSC provided recommendations on protective actions (evacuation, iodine thyroid blocking, sheltering, etc.), coordinated the sampling strategy of PAGD survey teams, aerial and ground radiation survey, organized and coordinated radiological measurements and ensured quality control of the assessment of radioactive contamination and decontamination of the evacuated members of the public.

At the meetings with the members of the Municipal Emergency Situations Commission at Molėtai and Širvintos municipalities RSC presented on the possible risk after the commissioning of the Belarusian NPP and the functions of the municipalities in case of nuclear or radiological accident.

   RSC Emergency Operations Center (hereinafter – ESOC) tabletop exercise took place and the preparedness to respond to nuclear accident of RSC ESOC was assessed.
