Information Sources A-3 Summary: Lists the initial isolation and protective action distances for various hazmat. Protective Action Distances (PADs) is the optimum distance to protect the public and response personnel from exposure to hazmat and to minimize risks and expenses due to over- reaction. Using emission rates and atmospheric dispersion models, several scenarios were ana- lyzed with varying chemicals, container type, location, etc., and a statistical approach was used to come up with PADs in each case. The values from this report are used in the emergency response guidebook. The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act Factsheet, March 2000 EPA (2000).
