POTTSTOWN, PA — Exelon Generation will conduct its semi-annual, full volume test of the emergency warning sirens surrounding Limerick Generating Station on Monday, December 5, at 2 p.m. This is one of two semi-annual tests scheduled for June and December each year.
The Limerick emergency warning siren system consists of 165 sirens located in parts of Montgomery, Chester and Berks counties within a 10-mile radius of the plant. The sirens are not a signal to evacuate, but a warning to tune to a local Emergency Alert Broadcast television or radio station. County emergency management authorities activate the sirens, which can be used in the event of any emergency, including severe weather.
Limerick Generating Station is located approximately 21 miles northwest of Philadelphia. The plant produces enough carbon-free electricity to power two million homes. Join us on Twitter and YouTube.
