The alarm from the nuclear power plant in Canada’s Queen’s Park caused panic. The statement said that the alarm was given “accidentally” during the training exercise.
According to the Canadian time, a message to mobile phones this morning caused panic. Queen’s Park Pickering Nuclear Power Plant and the cause of the message was announced by mistake was announced.
The message, sent around 7:30 a.m., should be used in the internal communication of a training exercise. Ontario’s Attorney General Sylvia Jones said the exercise was conducted by the State Emergency Operations Centre and the messages were sent as a result of a human error. Jones said there is no danger to the environment or the public.
Jones noted that the Ontario state government has apologised for the incident, which has caused concern to the public, and said an investigation has been launched to determine how the error occurred and not to repeat the same mistake.
he first message sent in the morning said that the emergency team had responded to a situation at the nuclear plant, but had no abnormal levels of radioactivity. The second message received two hours later, the plant was told that there was no active emergency, the first message was sent as a result of an error. The message also underlined the need for further prevention.
Correspondents at the Ontario Power Plant reported that there was no threat to the public, that no radiological incident had occurred, and that the message had been sent in error. Environmental activists have long opposed the nuclear power plant in Ontario. Following the last false alarm, attention was drawn to the density of people in the area near the Pickering plant. Environmentalists say the number of people living in the 30-kilometer-wide region is greater than the density of people living around nuclear plants throughout the Americas. One of the oldest and largest power plants in North America, Pickering, had previously been dangerous accidents.
Correspondents at the Ontario Power Plant reported that there was no threat to the public, that no radiological incident had occurred, and that the message had been sent in error. In the case of a Fukushima-like nuclear accident in Pickering, 26,000 cancer cases, half of which are fatal, are expected to occur within a few years. It is estimated that Pickering, Markham, Newmarket, Aurora, Richmond Hill and northern Scarborough in the expanded Toronto Area will be evacuated and that people will not live in these areas for 100 years.
