OK, I'm going to jump in here real hard !!!!!

Japan's Nuke Plant Emergency Plans    DO INCUDLE  methods to communicate with the local & world community,
both 'news' and technical help.

But, there's a compounding problem or two:  The emergency happened off-hours and the roads to their TSC / EOF equivalent faclities are kaput,
their communications systems are kaput, ( I speculate here -> ) many of the 'responders' do not ( no longer ) have a car , possibly not a home, possible lose of family members.

Reminds me of Turkey Point (Miami, FL) post Hurricane Andrew   . ONLY commo to outside world for many hours was ONE cell phone operated by someone standing on the roof of the aux building.....

Have many of you ever gone through a   "b.5.b"  E-Drill ?
. . .they are 'more than there"

Have a good day

Certainly I agree. Duh. However my point is "not" that these operators should be distracting themselves to provide "us" with what information "we" want to know.  Again. Duh.  But I am struck with the lack of anything useful. For us, or for the public. One outcome I expect from this event is to re-engineer emergency response protocols. One aspect of that is the public information system. If we consciously think about this topic now, there are some of us who might be able to provide useful input to policymakers later
