JENKINSVILLE, S.C. (Dec. 10, 2015) – SCE&G will conduct tests of its V.C. Summer Nuclear Station siren warning system on Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2015.
As part of maintenance and upgrades to the siren system, SCE&G will test sirens from approximately 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. during the afternoon. Area residents can expect to hear sirens sounding for less than one minute and up to three minutes. This testing period will include all sirens located within a 10-mile radius of the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station in Fairfield County near Jenkinsville.
Area residents are reminded that the sounding of sirens during this time period is only a test. In the highly unlikely event of an actual emergency at the plant, the sirens would sound with no prior notice and would alert area residents to tune to an Emergency Alert System radio or television station for further instructions.
