In the event of an emergency at the Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant, the Director, or those in charge of the facility, will activate their Emergency Action Plan. This Plan designates what actions should be taken by facility staff in order to ensure the safety of the children and staff. Below you will see information on what these actions are and how to locate your child.
If the Facility Director or those in charge order EARLY RELEASE of the children, the facility will close early and parents should follow usual pick up procedures.
Those children that are normally taken home by bus will be taken home as usual by bus.
In the event of a PRECAUTIONARY RELOCATION, children will be moved to a specific location where parents can pick them up. Find your child’s Facility Name in the chart below.
Beside the Facility Name you will see the Relocation Facility where your child will be taken. You may pick up your child at the Relocation Facility.PRECAUTIONARY CHART FOR SCHOOLS

Officials may determine that SHELTER-IN-PLACE is safer for the children and staff. If so, all children and staff will remain inside the facility. Parents may pick their children up at the facility the child attends.
