Emergency Sirens Tested on Tuesday, October 4

Salem/Hope Creek Nuclear Generating Stations will sound alarms for their quarterly tests within 10 miles of it.

SMYRNA, Del. — The Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA) and Delaware State Police will conduct a quarterly test of the Salem/Hope Creek Nuclear Generating Stations Alert and Notification system on Tuesday, October 4, 2022. The sirens will sound at approximately 10:45 a.m.

The 37 sirens located within ten miles of the Salem/Hope Creek (New Jersey) plants will be activated for three to five minutes. The siren tests will be followed by a test message of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) on local radio stations.

The sirens tested are the same ones used to alert the public in the event of an actual emergency at either the Salem or Hope Creek Nuclear Generating Stations. If such an emergency were to occur, the public would be alerted by the sirens to tune their radios to one of the local EAS stations for important emergency instructions.
