It is important to point out that the risk has not changed at Fermi 2 or Davis-Besse, however what has changed is the regulatory framework for Canadian nuclear installations.
Potassium Iodide (KI) Pill Request
Our Potassium Iodide (KI) Pill Request process is now available for residents of Windsor-Essex County.
1 KIT PER HOUSEHOLD (4-6 people)
Please visit our KI Pill Request website and follow the instructions.
Individuals who pre-registered to pick up their Potassium Iodide (KI) pills and were unable or unavailable to do so, will have their KI Pill Kit mailed out in the spring. The KI Pills are temperature sensitive and require a temperature range between 15°C and 30°C.
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.
If you live within the primary zone or secondary zone and are interested in ordering KI Pills for your home, you can register for a KI Pill Kit.
Your kit will be mailed to you in the spring, since the KI Pills are temperature sensitive and require a temperature range between 15°C and 30°C.
For further questions please call or email the Health Unit (519-258-2146 x 4445) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
