POTTSTOWN, PA (June 3, 2016) — Exelon Generation will conduct its semi-annual, full volume test of the emergency warning sirens surrounding Limerick Generating Station on Monday, June 6, 2016 at approximately 2:00 p.m. This is one of two semi-annual tests performed each year.
The three-minute full sound test is performed on the first Monday in June and December as part of Exelon's comprehensive Emergency Preparedness program. A shorter, lower pitch test is performed monthly.
Residents may contact the counties at the following numbers if they have concerns:
- Berks County (610) 374-4800
- Chester County (610) 344-5000
- Montgomery County (610) 631-6530
The Limerick emergency warning siren system consists of 165 sirens located in Montgomery, Chester and Berks counties within a 10-mile radius of the plant. The purpose of the sirens is to alert residents to tune to an Emergency Alert Broadcast Station for information from Pennsylvania state officials. During the test the Emergency Alert Broadcast System will not be activated.
Limerick Generating Station is located approximately 21 miles northwest of Philadelphia. The plant produces enough carbon-free electricity to power two million homes. Join us on
