The Montgomery County Department of Public Safety has announced that today, at 2:00 PM, Constellation (formerly Exelon Generation) will conduct its semi-annual, full-volume test of the emergency warning sirens surrounding Limerick Generating Station.

This is one of two semi-annual tests performed each year.

There is no emergency or cause for concern, the department says. The Limerick warning siren system consists of sirens located in the 10-mile radius around Limerick Generating Station in Montgomery, Chester, and Berks Counties.

In a real event, the sirens are not a signal to evacuate, but a warning to tune to a local Emergency Alert Broadcast television or radio station.

The Limerick Generating Station is located approximately 21 miles northwest of Philadelphia. The plant produces enough carbon-free electricity to power two million homes.
