FEMA TO DISCUSS EXERCISE RESULTS

Representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency will discuss the results of the Oyster Creek Nuclear Generating Station Radiological Exercise during a public meeting scheduled for 1 p.m., Friday, Sept. 29.

The discussion will focus on the exercise scheduled for Sept. 26. The public meeting will be held at the Ocean County Office of Emergency Management located at the Ocean County Airport, Route 530, here.

The biannual exercise tests the response of nuclear plant workers as well as municipal, county, and state agencies to a simulated emergency at the nuclear power plant.

According to Sheriff Michael G. Mastronardy, Emergency Management Coordinator, the Ocean County Office of Emergency Management along with 17 Ocean County Municipal Offices of Emergency Management will test their ability to respond to an emergency event at the Oyster Creek Nuclear Generation Station in Lacey Township during the exercise. The 17 municipalities are all located within a 10-mile radius of the Nuclear Plant.

“The Ocean County Office of Emergency Management participates annually in drills that focus on the nuclear power plant,” Mastronardy said. “This year’s exercise will be monitored and reviewed by FEMA. The federal agency will look at the actions taken by the participants and will review it for both efficiencies and any deficiencies they may find.”
