This paper examines the evacuation of people in the event of an emergency caused at a nuclear facility. The study describes the emergency preparedness of the Mochovce Nuclear Power Plant. The paper describes the proposal of the logistics solution and the implementation of protective and emergency preparation, which is determined by the internal emergency plan, based on the information flow in the event of an emergency and the activities of individual emergency response units. The above results indicate that the fewer people there are in one evacuated group, the longer the evacuation time will be. However, the reason is not the length of time to get to the assembly point itself, but the number of groups that must be created and therefore the higher number of trips that firefighters have to take. The optimal way to carry out this process safely, in the shortest possible time, could be to set up more groups of escorting firefighters, who would accompany groups with smaller numbers of evacuees. Strict preparation and adherence to pre-prepared instructions, based on logistical principles in the event of an emergency at a nuclear facility, minimizes loss of life and harm to the health of persons, and also damage to property or the environment.
