This plan provides a mechanism for coordinating radiological emergency assistance capabilities among participating states. SMRAP is authorized under the provisions of the Southern Agreement for Mutual State Radiological Assistance. It is reviewed, revised and administered on a permanent basis by the Southern Emergency Response Council (SERC), which was established for that purpose under the terms of the agreement. The council consists of radiological health program directors from each signatory state and the executive director of the Southern States Energy Board.

The plan contains general provisions and detailed resource information and is designed to serve the needs of state administrators as well as state radiological health personnel in their everyday activities.
