Area nuclear power plants Three Mile Island and Peach Bottom plan to test their emergency warning sirens this week.
Peach Bottom will test the sirens at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, while Three Mile Island’s will sound Thursday at 12:15 p.m.
The sirens can be heard in communities within a ten mile radius of the power plants. They are used to alert residents to tune into an Emergency Alert Broadcast station, where they can find information from state officials.
During this week’s tests the Emergency Alert Broadcast will not be activated.
