The following information came from MEMA Region 1 Communications Officer, Terry Stader-KA8SCP and I have added a press release from Peter Judge at MEMA Headquarters:
The Seabrook Power Station will be conducting a “demonstration” of their emergency siren system beginning at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 25.
This demonstration means the Power Station will be simultaneously sounding all 121 of their emergency sirens for a time frame of 3 to 5 minutes on that day. There are 27 sirens in Massachusetts and 94 in New Hampshire.
MEMA will be working in conjunction with Seabrook and FEMA on this demonstration. More information will be available through local cable TV, newspapers, the fire and police radio frequencies and electronic signboards on highways.
Local safety officials are hoping to notify as many people as possible about the demonstration so that the public is aware that there is no emergency taking place at the power plant and to prevent an influx of calls to 911 from concerned citizens wondering why the sirens are sounding.
