Security drills using weapons that simulate the sound of actual gunfire will be conducted at the Indian Point Energy Center, Entergy announced.

During the drills, scheduled during the evenings of Tuesday, May 7, 2019 and Thursday, May 16, 2019 persons near the site may hear the sound of simulated gunfire as participants carry out the activities.

Local law enforcement has been notified about the drills, Entergy said

Entergy will be using a technical innovation for the drills known as “MILES” gear, or Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement Systems.

The systems involve the use of laser “bullets” and vests with laser-detection equipment, which duplicate the effects, including the sound of live ammunition. MILES gear is used for military and counter-terrorism training across the country to make it as realistic as possible without using real bullets.

Indian Point Energy Center, in Buchanan, 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.

I know this would scare the heck ou of me. We can often hear the security drills, but they never sounded like live gunfire before. Of course Camp Smith has live gunfire drills for National Guard/reserve units all the time, but this would sound a little closer to home for me. Just wanted to give anyone within earshot of indian point on either side of the river a warning.

Now that its summer, all the NYC guard units start their summer 2 weeks and most have to go to Camp Smith since it has the only anti-aircraft simulators in the northeast. We get lots of reports sounding in the air from various weapons. Scary.
