Emergency drill planned for Prairie Island today
Ellsworth Wisconsin 126 S. Chestnut St. 54011

State agencies from both Wisconsin and Minnesota will take part in an emergency drill today at the Prairie Island nuclear power plant at Red Wing. Gopher State official Kris Eide says the exercise with plant owner X-cel Energy is required every two years, to make sure the area's health-and-safety are protected.  Emergency responders will practice what they'd do in a real disaster.  Eide says Minnesota will deploy field teams and mobile command posts, and have numerous people in downtown Red Wing, just on the other side of the Wisconsin border.
