HUNTERSVILLE – Sirens located around McGuire Nuclear Station will be tested Wednesday, Jan.12, at about 11:50 a.m.
No public action is required during this three-minute test. The sirens are tested to ensure they are working properly. This full-cycle siren test is performed once each quarter. County emergency officials are responsible for sounding the sirens.
Hearing a siren does not mean to evacuate. The siren is a signal for residents to tune to a radio or TV station in their area that would carry an emergency alerting message. County officials would use these stations to provide information to the public.
