During nuclear emergencies, all or part of 17 designated fire stations (Tuen Mun, Yuen Long, Fanling, Sai Kung, Sha Tin, Tsuen Wan, Lai Chi Kok, Po Lam, Kennedy Town, Chung Hom Kok, Sha Tau Kok, Tai Po, Ma On Shan, Penny's Bay, Mui Wo, Tai O and Cheung Chau) will be requested to take ambient gamma dose rate measurements as well as collect air particulates, radio-iodine and total deposition samples. Measurement results will be transmitted to the HKO Headquarters and collected samples will be analysed at the King's Park Radiation Laboratory.
