On Friday, November 20, SCK•CEN in Mol organizes an emergency exercise. Consequently the alarm sirens of SCK•CEN will be put into action.

It will be a small-scale exercise. Only the internal emergency plan of SCK•CEN and the interaction with the federal government (evaluation cell in the crisis centre of the government) will be tested. The provinces and municipalities are not involved this time.

The emergency exercise is organized in the framework of the periodical tests as foreseen in the legislation for each nuclear site. After the exercise all authorities will evaluate their own operation and cooperation.
