Ginna to Test Two Public Notification System Sirens

Two Wayne County sirens to be tested on July 27

ONTARIO, NY (July 21) — R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant will test two of its public notification sirens on Wednesday, July 27. These sirens are being sounded as a post-maintenance test. Residents in the area will hear the siren for approximately four minutes.

The tests will occur at the following times and locations:
• 2 p.m. – Shepard Rd., just east of Stone-Lonesome Rd. in Williamson
• 3 p.m. – Redman Rd., just north of Van Lare Rd. in Sodus

In the unlikely event of an actual emergency, the sirens would sound to alert the public to tune in to a local Emergency Alert System (EAS) radio or television station for important information. These stations are listed in the emergency planning calendar 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.
