ALERT: Today (Wednesday January 9) Duke Energy will be conducting a quarterly test of the McGuire Nuclear sirens from 11:50am – 12:00pm.
Why Sirens? They are used to alert people outdoors of an emergency, officials will sound sirens located within the 10-mile area Emergency Planning Zones (EPZ) around the McGuire Nuclear station. Sirens will sound repeatedly in an emergency. If you hear a loud, steady sound coming from one of the sirens around the station, tune to a local radio or TV station. These stations will carry an emergency alert information (EAS) message from local officials to give you information and instructions on what to do. Hearing a siren does not mean you should evacuate. It simply means to tune to a local radio or television station for information. #OneTownOneTeam
