Listen for the sirens but remember, it's only a test.

LIMERICK PA – Exelon Nuclear is scheduled to conduct its routine test Monday (Oct. 4, 2010) at 2 p.m. of emergency siren systems surrounding the Limerick Generating Station. Residents near the plant may hear a steady tone for a period of 3 minutes.

The test is performed on the first Monday of each month as part of Exelon’s emergency preparedness program.

The sirens are one of several methods emergency management authorities use to notify the public of emergencies such as fires, floods, tornadoes, hazardous material releases, or nuclear energy plant events.

Additional information on emergency preparedness can be found at the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency web site.
