26:2D-38. Legislative findings and determinations
The Legislature hereby finds and determines that the citizens of the State of New Jersey are entitled to the maximum protection possible from any and all threats to their health and welfare which may result from a radiation accident at a nuclear facility or during the transportation of radioactive material; that existing emergency response capabilities to abate these threats are dispersed among various State and local agencies and private organizations and limited in geographic scope; and that the dangers posed by these accidents can best be minimized by the development and implementation of a comprehensive and coherent response plan to coordinate and guide all necessary and appropriate resources and personnel into a unified course of action.
