Generation will conduct its semi-annual, full volume test of the
emergency warning sirens surrounding Three Mile Island Generating
Station on Thursday, Dec. 1 at approximately 12:15 p.m. This is one of
two semi-annual tests performed each year.
TMI emergency warning siren system consists of 96 sirens located in
parts of Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon and York counties that
are located within a 10-mile radius of TMI. 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
activate the sirens, which can be used in the event of any emergency,
including severe weather.
