Exelon Generation to Test Single Siren in Marion on January 30

One siren between Franklin Rd. and Marion Rd. will sound for three to five minutes

ONTARIO, NY -  Exelon Generation’s R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant is repairing one siren in Marion, located between Franklin and Marion roads. After the repairs are complete, this single siren will be tested at full volume on Tuesday, January 30 at 3 p.m. The siren will sound for three to five minutes. Because this is only a test, no response by the public is necessary.
 
Exelon Generation tests Ginna’s siren system on a daily, quarterly and annual basis to ensure public safety. 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 event of an emergency at Ginna. These stations are listed in the emergency planning brochure mailed to households and businesses in the 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone around R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant.
 
R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant is located on 426 acres along the south shores of Lake Ontario in Ontario, NY, about 20 miles northeast of Rochester and 53 miles southwest of Exelon's Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station. The plant generates enough carbon-free electricity for nearly 500,000 homes. Join us on Twitter and You Tube.
