The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has mandated that all residents within the primary zone of a nuclear installation have potassium iodide tablets available in their homes.

While neither nuclear installations are regulated by the CNSC, the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit and the local municipalities want the residents living within the primary zone and secondary zones to be treated the same and be as prepared as all other Canadian residents living near a nuclear installation.
