Limerick Warning Sirens Sound Off Monday

LIMERICK PA – A semi-annual, full-volume test of emergency warning sirens (at top) surrounding Exelon Corp.’s nuclear power plants at the Limerick Generating Station, 3146 Sanatoga Rd., will be held Monday (Dec. 2, 2019) at about 2 p.m., the company reported.

The warning siren system consists of 165 sirens located across Montgomery, Chester, and Berks counties in a 10-mile radius from the station. The sirens are not a signal to evacuate, but a warning to tune to a local emergency alert broadcast television or radio station. County emergency management authorities can activate the sirens in the event of any emergency, including severe weather.
