Radiation Monitoring Service

One of the central pillars of Civil Defence since its establishment in 1951, has been radiation monitoring. In 2015, the Department of Defence and the Environmental Protection Agency, consolidated the role of Civil Defence to the measurement of background gamma radiation and the sampling of soil and grass to supplement the automatic recording stations located throughout the State. An annual mobilisation exercise in conjunction with the Environmental Protection Agency will be run.
