Plymouth: Unusual event declared at Pilgrim turns out to be local hunters

A so-called unusual event – the least serious of four emergency classifications of events that apply to nuclear power plants as defined by the NRC – was declared just before 10:00 a.m. on Saturday at the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant for security considerations.

It turned out that the suspicious activity near the plant was just a number of local hunters. Pilgrim implemented its Integrated Security Response Plan and state and local public safety agencies were notified and assisted in the response.

The plant discontinued the unusual event just after 11:00 a.m. on Saturday.

About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
