Recent changes to nuclear safety regulations recommend offering potassium iodide (KI) tablets to anyone within 80km of USA nuclear power plants. Parts of West Kent and Rondeau Provincial Park are affected.
KI protects your thyroid gland by blocking radioactive iodine in the event of an accident at any of the plants. Take these tablets only in an emergency, and only under the direction of the Chief Medical Officer of Health for Ontario. Notice of an accident would happen many ways including radio, TV, social media, text message and phone calls.
