Sequoyah Emergency Drill To Involve Federal, State And Local Agencies

Wednesday, August 1, 2018

Emergency responders from federal, state and local agencies will join Tennessee Valley Authority personnel in an emergency preparedness training drill involving the Sequoyah Nuclear Plant on Wednesday, Aug. 8

The drill is part of an ongoing series of exercises required by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to ensure an effective and coordinated response to protect the health and safety of the public in the unlikely event of an emergency at Sequoyah.

The drill will involve hundreds of personnel working in multiple locations, including near the plant.

Residents may see increased vehicle traffic and may hear on- and off-site sirens briefly activated during the drill period on Aug. 8

A similar graded exercise will be conducted on Oct. 3, and results will be shared in a public meeting at a later date.
