Don’t be alarmed by the fake gunfire. The special gear duplicates the effects, including sound, of live ammunition.

CORTLANDT, NY — Entergy will be conducting security exercises at the Indian Point Energy Center during the evening Tuesday using weapons that simulate the sound of actual gunfire. During the exercises, anyone near the site may hear the sound of simulated gunfire.

Local law enforcement has been notified about the drills.

Entergy will be using a technical innovation for the exercise known as “MILES” gear, or Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement Systems. These systems involve the use of laser “bullets” and vests with laser-detection equipment, which duplicate the effects, including the sound, of live ammunition. MILES gear is used for military and counter-terrorism training across the country to make it as realistic as possible without using real bullets.

Indian Point Energy Center, in Buchanan, N.Y., is home to two operating nuclear power plants that generate approximately 2000 megawatts of electricity for homes, business and public facilities in New York City and Westchester County. They are slated to close permanently by 2022.
