Officials to test Oconee Nuclear Station sirens on Wednesday

The public alert notification sirens around the Oconee Nuclear Station will be tested on Wednesday, April 12 at approximately 11:50 a.m.
The 65 sirens, all located within 10 miles of the Oconee Nuclear Station, will be tested for three minutes to ensure each siren works properly. This test is performed once each quarter in cooperation with emergency officials in Oconee and Pickens counties.
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 alert message. 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 public alert notification sirens, residents can refer to information available on
