General News: Indian Point Training Drills

October 03, 2017

Entergy to Conduct Planned Security Training Exercises at Indian Point

Buchanan, N.Y. – Security officers will be participating in a scheduled training drill at the Indian Point Energy Center during parts of the evening on October 3. The training drills will involve simulated attack scenarios intended to be as realistic as possible. Members of the public may hear what appears to be gunfire from simulated weapons systems used during the exercises.

Local law enforcement agencies have been informed of the events.

Security officers will be using Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement Systems (MILES) gear during the drill. These systems involve special laser weaponry, which duplicates the effects, including sound, of live ammunition. MILES gear is used for military and counter-terrorism training across the country.

Indian Point Energy Center, in Buchanan, N.Y., is home to two operating nuclear power plants, Unit 2 and Unit 3, which generate approximately 2,000 megawatts of electricity for homes, business and public facilities in New York City and Westchester County. Entergy Corporation is an integrated energy company engaged primarily in electric power production and retail distribution operations. Entergy owns and operates power plants with approximately 30,000 megawatts of electric generating capacity, including nearly 9,000 megawatts of nuclear power. Entergy delivers electricity to 2.9 million utility customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. Entergy has annual revenues of approximately $10.8 billion and nearly 13,000 employees.
