All Exelon nuclear stations are robust and fortified facilities, capable of withstanding the most severe weather, including hurricanes and floods. Extra precautions have been taken at each Pennsylvania facility, including increased staffing, pre-staging of emergency equipment, activating back-up communications, and securing outside equipment and materials.
“These extra storm precautions make
our safe facilities even safer,” said Chris Mudrick, Exelon Senior VP
for Mid-Atlantic Operations. “Our plants are designed to withstand the
most severe weather conditions and we will continue to take actions that
keep our stations, our workers and the public safe.”
