The Limerick emergency warning siren system consists of sirens located in parts of Montgomery, Chester and Berks counties within a 10-mile radius of the plant.

Limerick Generating Station is located approximately 21 miles northwest of Philadelphia. The plant produces enough carbon-free electricity to power two million homes.
