Public Advisement – Oyster Creek Siren Testing – Tuesday, June 7th, 2016, at 10:00 a.m.

Very Small PatchResidents should be aware that the emergency sirens positioned within a 10 mile radius of the Oyster Creek Nuclear Generating Station will be tested at 10:00 a.m. today, Tuesday, June 7th, 2016. The sirens will sound simultaneously for three (3) full minutes during the test.

Please share this message. Anyone with questions or concerns regarding the siren testing may contact the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department, Office of Emergency Management (OEM), at (732) 341-3451.

As a side note to these tests, residents should know that the designed intent of the sirens is to advise people to immediately tune to the emergency broadcasting system for direction in an actual emergency. It is not considered an evacuation siren.

I thank residents in advance for cooperation during this testing. – Chief David A. Paprota, Ed.D.
