A multi-agency evaluation of preparedness at the Clinton Power Station will take place this spring.
The biennial drill evaluates Exelon and area agencies on their responses and procedures. Bill Conway, with the Emergency Management Agency, explains this is going to be a multi-county, multi-agency exercise.
The power plant sends out a yearly information brochure and this year instead of that brochure going out, Conway indicates it was a flyer that directs residents to a couple websites that will explain the upcoming drill and what evacuation procedures should look like in the event of an actual emergency.
With the exercise still in March, Regional Radio News will have more details in the coming weeks and months on the preparations that take place and how all the agencies involved work together for this drill.
