RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Federal emergency preparedness officials are heading to suburban Richmond to evaluate a simulated nuclear emergency at the North Anna Power Station.
Officials with the Federal Emergency Management Agency will offer their assessment Friday. They'll be reviewing state and local emergency responses during the simulation earlier this month at the nuclear power planted operated by Dominion Virginia Power.
The Virginia Department of Emergency Management led the exercise. It was intended to test their response to a radiological emergency.
Personnel from Caroline, Hanover, Louisa, Orange and Spotsylvania counties took part in their exercise.
