Siren test scheduled at Robinson Nuclear Plant

  • 0

HARTSVILLE, S.C. — The 59 outdoor warning sirens around the Robinson Nuclear Plant will be tested for five to 30 seconds between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Wednesday, as scheduled.

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 Chesterfield, Darlington and Lee counties, who are responsible for sounding the sirens.

Because this is a test, local broadcasting stations will not interrupt regular programming to broadcast Emergency Alert System messages.

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.
