Canada's Bruce Power put together this film documenting an intensive exercise in October involving 71 organizations preparing for an emergency at a nuclear plant.It shows a newly built emergency management center reacting to various scenarios, including power outages and a low-level radioactive material spill on a public road. In another scenario involving a station blackout, first responders also practice clearing blocked roadways and operating pumper trucks to supply emergency water to Bruce Power's Ontario reactors for 24 hours. Countries around the world have refocused on preparedness and are reevaluating their safety requirements at nuclear plants following the Fukushima Daiichi accidents in Japan. Much of that work focuses on delivering emergency equipment, like the trucks and generators shown here, to reactors that have lost power.
