Residents near the power plant may hear simulated firing noises related to the drill.

Scopelliti, community relations manager for the Susquehanna plant. “The drills we’re holding this week are part of the plant’s extensive emergency planning program that keeps us well-prepared to respond to a potential event.”
The Susquehanna plant, located in Luzerne County about seven miles north of Berwick, is owned jointly by PPL Susquehanna LLC and Allegheny Electric Cooperative Inc. and is operated by PPL Susquehanna LLC.
