Sirens to sound for three minutes at 1:00 p.m.

DELTA, PA  — Exelon Generation will conduct its semi-annual, full volume test of the emergency warning sirens surrounding Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station on Wednesday, Dec. 2 at approximately 1:00 p.m. This is one of two semi-annual tests performed each year.

The Peach Bottom emergency warning siren system consists of 97 emergency warning sirens in the 10-mile radius around Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station. The purpose of the sirens is to alert residents to tune to an Emergency Alert Broadcast Station for information from state officials. 

During the test, the Emergency Alert Broadcast System will not be activated.
Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station is located on the west bank of the Conowingo Pond (Susquehanna River) in York County, Pa. The station is home to two boiling water reactors capable of generating 2,700 megawatts combined. Both reactors began commercial operation in 1974.
