Oyster Creek Siren Test Scheduled for December 5

Sirens to sound for three minutes at noon

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. 

The Oyster Creek emergency warning siren system consists of 42 sirens located within a 10-mile radius of the Oyster Creek Generating Station. 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. 

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.
