| OFFSITE NOTIFICATION - INJURED SECURITY GUARD                                |
|                                                                              |
| At 1538 CT, 02/11/02 Control Room received a phone call from security that a |
| guard had received a laceration and needed medical attention.  Site          |
| emergency medical technicians were paged to respond and offsite ambulance    |
| and rescue personnel were notified to respond.   A security sergeant and one |
| site EMT accompanied the injured guard to Blair Memorial Hospital, leaving   |
| the site at 1601CT.                                                          |
|                                                                              |
| The injured guard was closing a security gate when high winds caused him to  |
| lose control of the gate.  The razorwire attached to the gate struck the     |
| guard on the back of his head behind his left ear.  The cut turned out to be |
| minor (requiring only several stitches) however the razor wire had nicked a  |
| small artery causing larger amounts of blood flow that otherwise would have  |
| occurred.                                                                    |
|                                                                              |
| The NRC Resident Inspector was notified of this event by the licensee.       |
