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

DELTA, Pa. —  Exelon Generation will conduct a full volume, single siren test on Wednesday, Oct. 12 at approximately 10 a.m. The siren is located in Lancaster County and is a part of the emergency warning siren system surrounding Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station. The siren will sound for three minutes, following maintenance, to confirm proper function.

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 powering more than 2.25 million homes and businesses. Both reactors began commercial operation in 1974.
