Nuclear Emergency Preparedness

Additional Siren Tests Scheduled in June & July

As part of new hardware installations, sirens will be tested in the following counties. Sirens are expected to sound for three minutes only, but may be sounded several times as testing progresses.

  • York County - Thursday, June 30, 2016 (between 10 a.m. - 11 a.m.)
  • Iredell County - Wednesday, July 6, 2016 (afternoon only)
  • Gaston County - Tuesday, July 12, 2016 (afternoon only)

Note: These tests are in addition to the quarterly siren test scheduled for 11:50 a.m. on Wednesday, July 13.

 We always expect our nuclear stations to operate safely, but in the unlikely event of a nuclear station emergency, we want you to be prepared. We’ve prepared emergency planning information in conjunction with the states and counties around our nuclear facilities. These plans are designed to protect you.

If you hear sirens, we want you to know what they mean and what you need to do.
