Emergency responders gather today to test their preparations for a disaster at nuclear power plants in Illinois.
The Kankakee County Emergency Operations Center will be staffed with several agencies testing their reaction to potential problems at the Braidwood Nuclear Power Plant. The Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) takes the lead in directing a scenario that’ll test responsive actions.
The exercise will test each of the emergency plans for each nuclear plant. It’s an exercise required every two years. State and local agencies will be tested.
