CALL NOW – Independent Safety Assessment is needed.

CALL NOW to later hear NRC meetings in Rockville, Md.!
Your wisdom could affect NRC decisions.
Use toll-free bridge line or conference call to listen in.

1. Leave a message now? Ralph Caruso, (301 415-8065)
If you get the machine you can ask for the toll-free number, the access
code, the time and date to call. Ask him to sign you up to hear the Advisory
Committee on Reactor Safeguards hearing testimony early this week on the
hazards (and the smooth sailing imagined) for the proposed uprate at New
England’s oldest reactor in Vernon, Vermont.

Recent fires, loss of highly radiated spent fuel, prior failure of tests
on meeting threats, requests for exemption of stack radiation monitors,
indicate lack of readiness for additional risks. Ask about corrosion,
cracking, vibration and containment overpressure, hazards the NRC sees of
greatest concern. Ralph can also give you the address to send your
comments, to be considered on Dec. 7.

2. Steven Hoffman (301 415-3245)
If you want to listen in on an NRC meeting at 10am on Wednesday, Nov. 30 at
the NRC offices in Rockville, MD. Entergy Nuclear wants to lump together
license renewal requests for Pilgrim and Vernon. Merry Christmas! You may
have an opportunity to comment and persuade the committee that this is
inappropriate, before the call ends around noon. Ask for the toll-free
number, the access code. Fifteen lines were available on Wednesday when
Sunny called.

D. Ray Shadis, Sally Shaw and Dorothy McIver ask …
