The Cecil County Health Department will distribute potassium iodide (KI) tablets today from 3 to 6 p.m. at the West Cecil Health Center, 49 Rock Springs Rd, Conowingo, MD 21918. This is an important precautionary measure for those who live within a 10-mile radius of the Peach Bottom nuclear power plant.
KI tablets can help protect the thyroid gland from the harmful effects of radioactive iodine in a nuclear emergency. The distribution is part of a larger emergency preparedness plan to ensure the safety of residents in the surrounding area. It is highly recommended that anyone who lives within 10 miles of the Peach Bottom nuclear power plant visit the West Cecil Health Center to receive their KI tablets.
