Mock emergency drill to be held at Prairie Island

RED WING -- This is only a test. That's the message from law enforcement as 25 agencies and 400 people take part in a mock drill today at the Prairie Island Nuclear Plant.

Department of Public Safety spokesman Doug Neville says they want people to know there will be field teams, emergency vehicles and aircraft in the area.

Neville says participants were not told in advance what the emergency situation is at the nuclear plant near Red Wing. They will be evaluated on their response following the annual drill.
