29 March 2021

On Monday, March 29th at approximately 9:15 a.m. Peterborough Fire Services responded to a fire alarm at BWXT Nuclear Energy Canada’s Peterborough plant. The alarm was determined to be a false alarm and there was no fire or activation of the sprinkler system. There was no health or safety risk posed to the public, employees or the environment.
