The US Consequence Management (CM) response element uses specific methodologies for dealing with the release of nuclear/radioactive material into the environment and has identified the potential impacts to the public and the environment. This paper will describe the history of how CM evolved, an overview of the current methods and response structure and include technical sections describing the federal response following a nuclear/radiological incident.
