Outdoor Warning Siren Test around Catawba Nuclear Station scheduled for Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Outdoor Warning Siren Test around Catawba Nuclear Station scheduled for Wednesday, October 17, 2018 *Three-minute test scheduled for Wednesday, October 17, 2018, at approximately 11:50 a.m. *No public action required. The outdoor warning sirens around the Catawba Nuclear Station will be tested on Wednesday, October 17, 2018, at approximately 11:50 a.m. This is the reschedule date due to inclement weather from Hurricane Michael. The 89 sirens within 10 miles of the Catawba Nuclear Station will be tested for three-minutes to make sure each siren works properly. This full-cycle siren test is performed once each quarter. Hearing a siren does not mean to evacuate. 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 alerting message. County officials use these stations to provide information to the public. This is only a test, no public action required.
