Anyone who lives within ten miles of a nuclear plant in Illinois can get free Potassium Iodide pills from the state. The Illinois emergency Management Agency will be providing the pills, in order to help people protect their thyroid in the event of a nuclear accident. It's been about ten years since the state handed the pills out but IEMA Director Jonathon Monken says some people may have misplaced their pills, may be new to the area, or need additional pills for other family members. Residents near the nuclear plants in Byron, Braidwood, Clinton, Dresden, LaSalle, and the Quad-Cities are all eligible to receive vouchers for the pills.
