TECHNICAL SUPPORT CENTER HVAC REMOVED FROM SERVICE FOR PLANNED MAINTENANCE

"This is a non-emergency eight hour notification for a loss of emergency assessment capability. This event is reportable in accordance with 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(xiii) because the work activity affects the functionality of an emergency response facility. Planned maintenance activities are being performed on 07/29/2014 to the Technical Support Center (TSC) HVAC.

"The work includes performance of breaker inspections and corrective/preventative AHU [Air Handling Unit] maintenance. The planned work activity duration is approximately 48 hours.

"If an emergency is declared requiring TSC activation during this period, the TSC will be staffed and activated using existing emergency planning procedures unless the TSC becomes uninhabitable due to ambient temperature, radiological, or other conditions. If relocation of the TSC becomes necessary, the Emergency Director will relocate the TSC staff to an alternate location in accordance with applicable site procedures.

"The Emergency Response Organization team has been notified of the maintenance and the possible need to relocate during an emergency.

"The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified.

"This condition does not affect the health and safety of the public or station employees."

The licensee will be notifying state and local authorities.
