Exelon Generation to Test Single Siren in Berks County on June 8

Single siren in Schultzville to sound for three minutes at 11:30 a.m.

POTTSTOWN, Pa. – Exelon Generation’s Limerick Generating Station is repairing one siren in Schultzville, Berks County, located at the intersection of Hoffmansville and Passmore Roads. After the repairs are complete, this single siren will be tested at full volume on Thursday, June 8 at 11:30 a.m. The siren will sound for three minutes. 

Because this is only a test, no response by the public is necessary.

The Limerick emergency warning siren system consists of 165 sirens located within a 10-mile radius of the Limerick 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. 

Limerick Generating Station is a nuclear energy plant located in southeastern Pennsylvania, about 20 miles northwest of Philadelphia in Montgomery County. It is built on a 650-acre site and draws its cooling water from the Schuylkill River. Together, Limerick Unit 1 and Unit 2 produce 2,345 net megawatts (MW) of electricity - enough energy to power more than two million average American homes.
