Entergy announced it will conduct a security response exercise at the Indian Point Energy Center on June 17 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Organizations participating in the exercise include NRC, FBI, Department of Homeland Security, New York State Police and Westchester County Police Department as well as other local law enforcement and emergency service responders.
Residents are warned that they may see police vehicles responding to Indian Point during the drill.
“We are taking steps to notify the public now that they may see emergency service and police vehicles near Indian Point so there is no undue alarm caused by this exercise,” said Joe Pollock, IPEC’s site vice president and top Entergy official at the plant.
The event, an integrated pilot comprehensive exercise (IPCE), is a multi-agency effort intended to enhance how federal, state and local law enforcement work together with site security personnel to prepare for responding to a security incident at the plant.
