Nuclear Power Incident (TMI - Three Mile Island)
If a serious incident occurs at a nuclear power plant,
radiation could be released into a river as a liquid and travel
downstream, or it could be released into the air as a gas and
carried by the wind along a pathway consisting of an area
within about a 10-mile radius of the plant.
The College is not located within the 10-mile evacuation area
for Three Mile Island (TMI) in Middletown, Pa., as defined by the
Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency. However, College officials
may order an off-campus evacuation if it is believed that an
incident at TMI poses a possible threat to students and employees.
Instructions for the evacuation will accompany the announcement of
such an evacuation.
Note: The College is the designated evacuation site for the
Milton Hershey School which is in the 10-mile evacuation area
for TMI. Assistance in caring for evacuees will be provided
by College staff and Metz Culinary Management.
