Siren tests scheduled for Wednesday around McGuire and Catawba nuclear plants

The public alert notification sirens around the Catawba and McGuire nuclear stations will be tested at about 11:50 a.m. Wednesday.

The 89 sirens within 10 miles of Catawba Nuclear Station and the 67 sirens within 10 miles of McGuire Nuclear Station will be tested for three minutes to make sure each siren works properly.

The quarterly tests are performed in conjunction with emergency officials in the counties around the plants. Joe Marusak
