Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA– Governor Jerry Brown and California’s interim director of Public Health, issued a statement on radiation safety today.

Public Health Director Dr. Howard Backer assured Californians that public health and safety do not face any threat from radiation released at nuclear facilities in Japan this week.

“As this very tragic situation in Japan unfolds, I want Californians to know that we are closely monitoring any potential impact on our state,” said Governor Brown. “I also want to emphasize that there is no threat to the people of California due to radiation in Japan. The California Department of Public Health and our Emergency Management Agency are in constant contact with the federal agencies responsible for monitoring radiation levels in California, and we will tell the public if any precautions become necessary. However, there is no cause for alarm.”

Californians with questions about radiation exposure can contact the California Department of Public Health’s Emergency Operations information line at 916-341-3947.
