TORONTO — A website dedicated to nuclear safety reported more than 30,000 orders placed online for potassium iodide, or KI, pills after a mistaken emergency alert about a nearby power plant occurred on the weekend.
After the emergency alert was sent from Pickering Nuclear Generating Station around 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, the nuclear safety website “Prepare to be Safe,” which is jointly managed by the Region of Durham, the City of Toronto and Ontario Power Generation, was inundated with online orders for KI pills that protect the body from radioactive elements.
