Exelon Generation, the nuclear power company that runs the Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station, will perform a semi-annual routine test of its emergency sirens around 1 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 5. 

The emergency warning siren system comprises 97 sirens scattered within a 10-mile radius of the nuclear power plant. Exelon said in a news release that the sirens are not an evacuation alert, but instead are meant to direct residents to a local Emergency Alert Broadcast television or radio station.
