The recent nuclear meltdown of a plant in Japan show the world how dangerous the technology can be without the proper redundancies and the event made big headlines in the United States, especially for workers in the nuclear industry who recognize the fact that significant backup systems are required to ensure safety of nuclear plants. At a plant in the Southern California, for example, engineers have designed extra rooms of equipment that will come into play in the event of an emergency where extra power is needed to keep the nuclear reactor online and prevented from melting down.
The tsunami that hit Japan resulted in the complete failure of the entire system of a nuclear plant that was located near the ocean and employed some out of date techniques for safety. For people living in other countries where complete systems of redundancy don’t exist, it is recommended that normal citizens make sure they have some safety items around or a nukalert available just in case of a disaster. He can never hurt to be over prepared for a disaster even if it is very unlikely to occur. There has never been anything wrong with over preparedness.
American power companies who work with nuclear plants have been engaging in some significant research as to the best way to keep nuclear plants online after disaster strikes like an earthquake or tsunami. One of the reasons most nuclear plants are near rivers and the ocean is that they use the water in the surrounding area to help cool the reactors. But sometimes Mother Nature can take things into her own hands and create a danger for the continued operation of the plant.
