Washington, DC – A spokesman for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) reports a panel appointed by the president to oversee the commission has approved the relocation of the Emergency Operations Facility (EOF) and Joint Information Center (JIC) for the Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant. Neil Sheehan said the decision was unanimous.  

“This occurred after the NRC staff completed its review of Exelon’s license amendment request seeking the agency’s permission to move the EOF and JIC to consolidated Exelon facility in Coatesville, PA,” Sheehan stated. “These facilities are used in the event of an emergency at the plant. They are also be utilized for training exercises to test the plant’s emergency response capabilities.”

Calvert Cliff’s EOF and JIC are currently co-located in the Calvert Industrial Park, located at Skipjack Road and Hallowing Point Road in Prince Frederick.
