Star and flag there's always reason to be concerned when a potential security breach occurs at a nuclear facility.

Thread title sent a cold chill down my back...

those words should not ever be in the same sentence.

Early days yet, before I panic, I want to know if there's a reason to.

FYI - so far they haven't heard anything major yet (or that they could tell me about). Was reminded that most bases or secured sites have standard emergency procedure to shut down all the gates, even if it is just some alarm that ran out of batteries and is going off somewhere.

Keep an eye on this, but don't panic, yet.

Well that is certainly a bit disconcerting. I am not a fan of nuclear plant emergencies....especially when they won't say what it was....

Thanks for starting thread so we can track.

Not enough info to be concerned yet.
Could just as likely be a false positive on any one of a million things as it could be a legit security threat.

You have people working there, or just in the industry?

If the former, hope they're safe.

They said there's nothing outside so that means an internal issue. Probably an employee fight or something stupid. We have 2 local plants and I know people that work security at them. A while back they had a woman who refused to remove her ear rings and she knew better and continued to argue, so they hit the button when she got mouthy again and suddenly she's in an explosion proof room waiting for the state Police. Never to work in the nuke field again anywhere.

Turn out it's just some poor sap that wanted an application for janitorial work. Didn't see any guards and went to find the office.

thats not really what it is but I could see that happening.

They actually work in the bowels of the Pentagon... but this is the kind of thing they would know about pretty quickly.

Completely agree, the terms security threat and nuclear are just...well...not inspiring.
Hopefully it is all down to some Homer Simpson type error and has no repercussions.

"The Aiken Standard, quoting a source on the site, reported it involved a bomb sniffing dog alerting on a vehicle. Other local media said the dog alerted on a truck coming in to restock vending machines and bomb squads had been called to the scene as a precaution."

I'm getting a little more nervous, because I can usually hear back from my family member via email pretty quickly. I am still hoping this is a false alarm of some sort.

Although the whole vending machine thing has my imagination thinking back to the Sum of All Fears novel...

I prefer yours, too. Though that opens up a wonderchest of issues too, though less immediate.

I just went over to Broadcastify to check scanners for Aiken County,
Both Sheriffs Dispatch, and Public Safety, initially appeared as 'online'
- Now they're both offline.

I'm just throwing it out there. S&F.

Theory...

Vending company adds new product to the line containing Almonds.
Dog trained to sniff out explosives recognizes the scent of Almonds as being a threat, gives a false signal, bomb squad called over a new Almond snack because people don't talk to each other or have basic common sense

We may have differing views on other threads, but I really appreciate your quite rational theory here.

Lets up that's all this is, a mis-communication and hyper response.
