BUCHANAN, N.Y. -- Residents are warned that there may be sounds of gunfire due to security officers participating in scheduled training drills at the Indian Point Energy Center during parts of the day and evening on Thursday, April 23 and Tuesday, April 28.
The training will include simulated attack scenarios that are intended to be as realistic as possible.
Members of the public may hear the sound of artificial gunfire from simulated weaponry used during the exercises.
Local law enforcement agencies have been informed of the events. Security officers will be using Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement Systems, or MILES, gear during the drill.
These systems involve special laser weaponry which duplicates the effects, including the sound, of live ammunition. MILES gear is used for military and counter-terrorism training across the country.
