|CONCURRENT REPORT FOR A COMMUNICATION LINE OUT OF SERVICE
The following was received via email from Global Nuclear Fuel - America:
"On May 7, 2020, Global Nuclear Fuel America initiated maintenance activities on fire alarm systems that affect the Waste Treatment facility and the Process Lagoons. Compensatory measures were enacted. Upon system restoration, it was determined that a communication line between the initiating devices of fire alarm systems and the Emergency Control Center (ECC) was not functioning. Per State code requirements, fire alarm systems must report back to a continuously monitored station. Compensatory measures remained in place.
"At approximately 1625 (EDT) on May 7, 2020, the New Hanover County Deputy Fire Marshall was notified per State code requirements that communications between the initiating devices of fire alarm systems and the ECC were not functioning. Because the New Hanover County Deputy Fire Marshall was notified, a concurrent notification to the NRC Operations Center is being made per 10 CFR 70, Appendix A (c)."
The licensee will notify NRC Region 2.
