Senior Security Officer
Braidwood Generating Station, Braidwood, IL, Exelon Nuclear
Securing the power
As part of Exelon’s well trained and highly dedicated force of security officers, Nancy McCarrin knows that the security of our nuclear facilities is vital to the safety of our communities and our nation.
McCarrin’s begins her day at Braidwood by equipping herself for duty, followed by a security team briefing. She then takes up her first post, rotating to other posts throughout the day. “We’re never at any one position for too long,” McCarrin notes, “which keeps us fresh and alert.” Her duties at these posts include controlling access points, conducting foot and vehicle patrols and monitoring surveillance and alarm systems.
McCarrin is well aware of what is at stake in her job and of the value of her training. “I live less than a mile away from the plant,” she notes, “so the impact of how well I perform in the event of a contingency is very important to me. If there is an event, I know that Exelon has provided me with the training and resources to make a positive difference in the outcome.”
