Braidwood nuclear station to host community night

BRACEVILLE – Ever wonder how a nuclear power plant operates? Attend Braidwood Generating Station’s Community Information Night on Aug. 27 and see firsthand how operators safely harness the power of the atom to provide electricity to more than 2 million homes and businesses.

The free event will be at Braidwood’s Services and Training Center from 4 to 7 p.m. The training center is at 36400 S. Essex Road, Wilmington. Station employees will be available to educate visitors on station operations, engineering practices, environmental stewardship, industrial safety, radiological safety, site security, emergency preparedness and more. Visitors also can tour the plant’s main control room simulator, which is used to train reactor operators. Food will be served and participants can register to win an Apple TV.

“Community Information Night is a great opportunity to learn more about a working nuclear station and meet the men and women who are dedicated to running it safely and reliably,” Braidwood site Vice President Mark Kanavos said in a news release. “We look forward to hosting this event each year and sharing our commitment to nuclear safety and environmental stewardship with our neighbors.”
