Reminder: Sirens Around ONS Will Be Tested Wednesday, July 8

The outdoor warning sirens around Oconee Nuclear Station will be tested at approximately 11:50 a.m. on Wednesday, July 8. The 65 sirens within 10 miles of the Oconee Nuclear Station will sound for three minutes. To ensure they are functioning properly, it may be necessary to test some sirens more than once. Testing is performed in cooperation with emergency officials in Oconee and Pickens counties, who are responsible for sounding the sirens. If there were ever a real emergency at the plant requiring the sirens to be sounded, local radio and television stations would broadcast information and instructions to the public.
