UCS is helping make nuclear power in the United States safer, reducing risks for the millions of Americans who live near nuclear power plants.

Enforcing fire and earthquake regulations, addressing flood risks, and moving spent nuclear fuel to dry casks are just a few of the things we’re calling for to prevent nuclear accidents. For these steps to become reality, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) must become the tough, consistent regulator the public deserves. Here’s how you can help!
