Salem/Hope Creek Nuclear Emergency Sirens To Be Tested

Posted: Updated:

SMYRNA, Del. - A heads up for residents living nearby to the Salem/Hope Creek Nuclear Generating Stations.

On Tuesday, July 8th, between 5:00 and 9:00 PM, The Delaware Emergency Management Agency, and Delaware State Police will run the quarterly test of the Salem/Hope Creek Nuclear Generating Stations alert and notification system. Officials say the 37 sirens within ten miles of the plants will be activated for anywhere from three to five minutes, during the test.

The siren tests will be followed by a test of the Emergency Alert System on local radio stations. These sirens are the same sirens that would alert the public if there were an actual emergency at either the Salem or Hope Creek Nuclear Generating Stations.

In such an emergency, the public would be alerted by the sirens to tune radios to one of the local EAS stations for important emergency instructions.
