Oyster Creek Siren Test Scheduled for December 1

Sirens to sound for three minutes at 10 a.m.

FORKED RIVER, NJ – Exelon Generation will conduct its semi-annual, full volume test of the emergency warning sirens on Tuesday, December 1 at approximately 10 a.m. This is one of two semi-annual tests scheduled for June and December each year.

The purpose of the sirens is to notify residents to tune to an Emergency Alert System (EAS) radio or television station in case of an emergency.

In 2013, Exelon Generation replaced all 42 emergency warning sirens in the 10-mile radius around Oyster Creek with new, state-of-the-art units featuring battery back-up. The original sirens were removed last year.

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.
