Oyster Creek Siren Test Scheduled for December 5Oyster Creek Siren Test Scheduled for December 5<div>FORKED RIVER, NJ (November 30, 2017) – Exelon Generation will conduct its semi-annual, full-volume test of the emergency warning sirens on Tuesday, Dec. 5, at approximately noon. This is one of two semi-annual tests scheduled for June and December each year. </div><div><br></div><div>The Oyster Creek emergency warning siren system consists of 42 sirens located within a 10-mile radius of the Oyster Creek Generating Station.

County emergency management authorities activate the sirens. </div><div><br></div><div>Oyster Creek is located about 60 miles east of Philadelphia in Ocean County, New Jersey. The plant produces 636 net megawatts of electricity at full power, enough electricity to supply 600,000 typical homes, the equivalent to all homes in Monmouth and Ocean counties combined. </div><div><br></div>http://www.exeloncorp.com/newsroom/oyster-creek-siren-test-scheduled-for-december-512/1/2017 9:00:00 PM
Exelon Generation to Test Public Notification System on December 5Exelon Generation to Test Public Notification System on December 5<div><strong>​OSWEGO, NY (Nov. 30, 2017)</strong> – Exelon Generation will perform a bi-annual, full-volume test of its emergency warning sirens on Tuesday, Dec. 5, at 1 p.m. Because this is only a test, no response by the public is necessary.</div><div><br></div><div>The test will involve sounding all sirens in the 10-mile radius of the two nuclear power plants, James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant and Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station, for three minutes. Additional single-siren tests may be conducted throughout the day. Exelon Generation tests the siren system on a monthly and bi-annual basis to ensure public safety. </div><div><br></div><div>The purpose of the sirens is to alert residents to tune to an Emergency Alert System (EAS) television or radio station for information in the unlikely event of an emergency at one or both of the nuclear facilities. These stations are listed in the emergency planning brochure mailed to households and businesses in the 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone. <br><br></div><div>Short audible tests ("growl tests") are conducted the first Tuesday of each month at 1 p.m. unless there is a full-sound test scheduled. Maintenance on the siren system throughout the year now includes audible tests of a few seconds for individual sirens, both for regular maintenance and for repairs of individual sirens when necessary.<br>​<br></div><div>The Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station and James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant are located seven miles northeast of Oswego and 50 miles north of Syracuse. Nine Mile Point can produce more than 1,947 megawatts of carbon-free electricity – enough to power nearly two million homes. The 838-megawatt FitzPatrick Plant generates carbon-free electricity for more than 800,000 homes.  Follow FitzPatrick on Facebook and Twitter @FitzPatrick_NPP.</div><div><br></div>http://www.exeloncorp.com/newsroom/exelon-generation-to-test-public-notification-system-on-december-512/1/2017 8:00:00 PM
