Emergency Medical Coordination Memorandum of Agreement at Brookhaven National Laboratory
Because of possible exposure to radioactive and hazardous materials and the potential for industrial accidents at Department of Energy (DOE) sites, the Department has established formalized agreements with local emergency medical providers. These arrangements are generally documented through memoranda of agreements (MOAs). These documents detail the mutual understanding between DOE and the offsite emergency medical provider with respect to capabilities, specific support, and procedures for ensuring an integrated and effective response, including specific procedures for receipt of victims of radiation accidents.
