The concept of integrated emergency management presupposes a strong operational and communication coordination.

However, past experiences show that in radiological emergencies there are always many voices explaining, commenting, giving opinions and, finally, influencing the perception and response of the population. This paper shows that achieving a globally coordinated approach in communicating with many publics about a single local nuclear and radiological emergency likely remains only wishful thinking of emergency communication planners.",
