Wow! At the time, you should of won an award for innovation for creating an unannounced, unplanned safety and evacuation test that no one including plant safety was aware. What better way to assess the true state of emergency readiness. Planned safety drills are so blase and if everyone knows they are coming, what's the point. Very low bar.
Hopefully in addition to your recognition at the time, there was a hefty pay raise as well.
I'm glad you are now receiving the recognition well overdue. Congratulations on your award!
