The Michigan Department of Community Health has determined that it is prudent to make potassium iodide (KI) pills available to residents in the Emergency Planning Zones (EPZ'S) near Michigan Nuclear Power Plants to provide protection in the unlikely event of a release of radioactive material from a nuclear plant.
As a courtesy to our valued stakeholders (within 10-miles radius of a state's nuclear power plant), we would like to extend an invitation to you to hear an update on the State of Michigan Department of Community Health's plans to make Potassium Iodide pills available on a voluntary basis to people living, working or visiting within this radius.
More information about Potassium Iodide and radiological emergencies can be found at the MDCH web site.
