Media Statement – Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant Security Update

September 10, 2014

Calvert-CountyRecent media reports have highlighted changes in security measures at Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant (CCNPP) in Lusby, Md. The Calvert County, Maryland, Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) issued the following statement:

“Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant is required to meet the security requirements set forth by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). We are satisfied that the NRC has conducted due diligence regarding plant safety and security. We remain fully engaged with senior plant management and are confident that the security measures have been designed to protect the facility, their employees and the public.”

In April 2014 Exelon (formerly Constellation Energy) notified the Board of County Commissioners that enhanced security measures were put in place, resulting in redeployment of gate security guards. All security changes were approved by the NRC. The NRC requires all nuclear power plants to employ a physical protection program that includes intrusion detection and alarm systems, armed response to defend the facilities and other measures that are not shared with the general public.

For further information the public can contact the NRC at 1-800-368-5642 or CCNPP Community Relations at 410-495-5221.

    90 percent of NSO hates that the front gate is shut down! Not to mention the fat lazy individuals in charge of security. The new company is more concernd about saving money rather than safety .So go investigate that fox news you will not be let down

    “About 75 percent of nuclear power facilities in the country operate in this way, without guards at the main entrance.”
    plant spokesman Kory Raftery

    Well then, as a guard gate for a retirement community, I can now tell our residents that they are more secured than a nuclear power plant.
