More than two hundred public safety officials from federal, state and local agencies will continue mock exercises this week to train emergency responders for a potential accident at the Shearon Harris nuclear plant in Wake County.
The training will take place within six emergency operations centers operated by the state, by four counties and at the Harris nuclear plant. The counties involved are Wake, Chatham, Harnett and Lee.
The exercises take place on Tuesday and Wednesday and will train participants in dealing with hypothetical accidental scenarios at the nuclear plant.
This week's indoor training follows outdoor exercises conducted last week, in which officials trained in emergency traffic control and clearing people from lakes and waterways, as well as setting up reception centers and decontamination centers.
