Emergency exercise taking place in Oak Ridge Wednesday

Local News

You may see lots of emergency workers out around Oak Ridge National Labs and the Oak Ridge Reservation this morning but don’t worry, it’s just a drill.

First responders from the Department of Energy, ORNL, state and local emergency management will take part in an emergency exercise.

You may also see low-flying National Guard helicopters near Melton Hill Lake.

Again, it’s all part of the drill. The exercise is set to start around 8 a.m. Wednesday and will wrap up around noon.
