The three-minute test is scheduled between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Wednesday, July 14th. No action is needed – this is for your situational awareness.
The 67 sirens within 10 miles of the McGuire Nuclear Station and the 89 sirens within 10 miles of the Catawba Nuclear Station will sound for three minutes. To ensure they are functioning properly, it may be necessary to test some sirens more than once. Testing is performed in cooperation with emergency officials in Mecklenburg, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln, Catawba, and York counties, who are responsible for sounding the sirens.
