Nuclear Evacuation Plan

In the event that it is necessary to evacuate schools because of an event at the H.B. Robinson Nuclear Plant, the District will follow the plan as developed by Duke Energy and the Chesterfield County Office of Emergency Management


Chesterfield County Nuclear Evacuation Plan


What can I expect?


Schools in the area around H.B. Robinson Nuclear Station have emergency plans for school children.

  • In an emergency, school officials would be contacted by county emergency management officials.
  • If an evacuation were ordered, all children attending school inside the 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone would be moved to the pick-up point Chesterfield-Ruby Middle or Palmetto Learning Center for their school. This may be different from the pick-up point listed for the student’s home.
            -McBee Elementary & McBee High School pick up will be Chesterfield-Ruby Middle School.
            -Plainview Elementary pick up will be Palmetto Learning Center.
  • Parents should pick up students at pick-up centers only. Do not call or go to the schools. This will help avoid delays. All pick-up points are more than 10 miles from the station.
  • Adults would care for the children until parents arrive at the pick-up center.
  • It is important for parents to know in what zones their children’s schools are located. To find out, locate the correct zone on the map for your children’s schools. Parents should familiarize themselves with the pick-up centers and reception centers for their children’s schools.


If your children are ever left home alone, you should tell them what to do in an emergency. Be sure they know what zone they are in.
