Peach Bottom

Siren test on Wednesday

Exelon Generation will conduct its semi-annual, full-volume test of the emergency warning sirens surrounding Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station at 1 p.m. Wednesday.

The Peach Bottom emergency warning siren system consists of 97 sirens located in the 10-mile radius around Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station.

County emergency management authorities activate the sirens, which can be used in the event of any emergency, including severe weather.
