Nuclear Safety Preparedness

Xcel Energy has developed new mobile applications for residents near the Monticello and Prairie Island nuclear facilities in the event of an emergency. Ready Monti (Apple/Android) and Ready PI (Apple/Android) contain information about emergency procedures and emergency preparedness. The likelihood of a nuclear emergency is very small, and we work diligently every day to ensure the safe operation of our facilities. Part of that work is being prepared and ensuring our communities and employees remain safe. Please download the free apps (available for iPhone and Android devices).

Working closely with national, state and local emergency management agencies, Xcel Energy’s nuclear plants have developed detailed emergency plans that address actions to be taken to protect the health and safety of the public up to 50 miles from our Monticello and Prairie Island Nuclear Generating plants. These plans are practiced routinely with oversight from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The basic information contained in these pages provides guidelines for what to do if you hear sirens sounding, where to go if you are told to evacuate and where school children would be taken in the remote possibility of a nuclear emergency at one of Xcel Energy’s nuclear plants.

Energy Saving Tip

Install ceiling fans to keep cool air circulating so you can turn down your air conditioner. Still, make sure to turn off your fan when you leave the room.

Break Ground, Not the Law

Always call 811 before digging in your yard to avoid hitting buried gas or electric lines. Not only is it the safe thing to do, but it's the law.
