2006 TEPP Annual Report

During Fiscal Year (FY) 2006, the Office of Environmental Management (EM) completed over 14,000 shipments of radioactive wastes and materials in their accelerated cleanup efforts.  To address state and tribal concerns about emergency response to a radiological accident involving DOE materials, the Office of Transportation implements the complex-wide Transportation Emergency Preparedness Program (TEPP).  As an element of the DOE Comprehensive Emergency Management System, TEPP provides support to federal, state, tribal, and local authorities to prepare for a response to a radiological transportation incident.  TEPP is implemented on a regional basis, with a TEPP Coordinator designated for each of the eight DOE Regional Coordinating Offices.  TEPP, by integrating transportation and emergency preparedness activities, takes a coordinated approach to addressing the emergency response concerns of state, tribal, and local officials affected by DOE shipments.
