Abstract: As part of NRC's effort to review and improve emergency response program areas, a telephone survey will be conducted to assess the satisfaction of the pubic with existing protective action strategies, the effectiveness in which these strategies are conveyed to the public, and the public response to the possibility of modifying protection action strategies.
