Exelon Generation to Test Public Notification System on May 2

Sirens to sound for three to five minutes between 9:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.

ONTARIO, NY. - Exelon Generation’s R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant will perform an annual full volume test of its emergency warning sirens between 9:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 2. 

The test will involve sounding all 96 sirens in Ginna’s 10-mile radius for three to five minutes. Additional single-siren tests may be conducted throughout the day. Exelon Generation tests Ginna’s siren system on a daily, quarterly and annual basis to ensure public safety. 

The purpose of the sirens is to alert residents to tune to an Emergency Alert System (EAS) television or radio station for information in the event of an emergency at Ginna. These stations are listed in the emergency planning brochure mailed to households and businesses in the 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone around R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant. Because this is only a test, no response by the public is necessary.

R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant is located on 426 acres along the south shores of Lake Ontario in Ontario, NY, about 20 miles northeast of Rochester and 53 miles southwest of Exelon's Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station. The plant generates enough carbon-free electricity for nearly 500,000 homes. Join us on Twitter and YouTube
