Emergency response to accident scenarios requires timely classification of the event to offsite agencies. An EAL is a pre-determined, site-specific, observable threshold for a plant condition that places the plant in an emergency classification level (ECL). FRS equipment and system status provides a direct input to assist in the evaluation and classification of the event according to the emergency action level as described in NEI 99-01 guidance document.
ECL reporting is a regulatory requirement. FRS-EAL automates the emergency classification level process by assisting with the identification and timely reporting of an undesirable event. All facilities are different; FRS customizability allows the EAL module to be built using site-specific systems as well as any state and local requirements associated with emergency classification schemes not reflected in NEI 99-01.
