Emergency exercise set for Arizona nuclear plant

PHOENIX -- The Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station west of Phoenix will participate in an emergency response exercise next week.

The Arizona Division of Emergency Management said the exercise will be held Wednesday and involve the plant's own personal as well as responders from local, county, state and federal agencies.

The exercise is intended to test the use of emergency operations facilities, decision-making on whether people should evacuate or remain in place, and deployment of radiological monitoring teams.

Two federal agencies will evaluate the exercises.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission will grade the plant's own emergency plan while the Federal Emergency Management Agency assesses off-site emergency response capabilities.
