Nuclear station siren test Oct. 10
The outdoor warning sirens around the Catawba Nuclear Station will be tested about 11:50 a.m. Oct. 10. All 89 sirens within 10 miles of the station will be tested for three minutes to make sure each siren works properly. This test is performed once each quarter.
No public action is required. Hearing a siren does not mean to evacuate.
In an emergency, sirens are sounded as a signal for residents to tune to a local radio or TV station that would carry an emergency-alerting message. County officials use these stations to provide information to the public. If sirens are heard and residents are unsure if it is a test or an emergency, they should tune to their local radio or TV station.
For more information about the sirens, visit www.duke-energy.com/NuclearEP.
