BURLINGTON, Kan. (AP) _ Don't worry if you see soldiers and law
enforcement scurrying around the Wolf Creek Nuclear Generating
Station on Wednesday. It's just a drill.

Wolf Creek spokeswoman Jenny Hageman said Tuesday that the drill will involve a hostile-action scenario. Some national guard members, federal and local law enforcement officials and Wolf Creek personnel will take part.

The drill is in response to a Nuclear Regulatory Commission and industry initiative that all nuclear power plants test hostile action response capabilities.

The plant, located in Coffey County, is the state's only commercial nuclear power plant.
