     The materials related to counter measures and emergency actions after a disaster must be kept available.  The equipment to measure radiation levels should be available.   Protective clothing wear, Radioactive decontamination kit and emergency kit should be defined.   A mobile laboratory may be needed.   Alternate food, water and residence arrangements need to be planned for the areas which are around a few km around nuclear plants.   Evacuation procedures must be developed.


Design and construction of plants:

 
     It should be seen that the location is not earthquake prone or severe cyclone prone area.   The walls must be tall, and thick to prevent radiation from spreading out.   Proper precautions in the plant and underground storage are to be followed.  The safety must be audited regularly.
