HARRISBURG, PA (November 30, 2016) –
Dauphin County Commissioners Jeff Haste, Mike Pries and George P. Hartwick, III
are reminding residents within a 10-mile radius of the Londonderry Township-based
Three Mile Island (TMI) that a test of the facility’s emergency warning sirens
will be conducted on Thursday, Dec. 1 at 12:15 p.m.
As part of the test conducted by Exelon
Generation, which operates TMI, all 96 sirens within 10 miles of the facility
will sound for three minutes.
The purpose of the sirens is to alert
residents to tune in to an Emergency Alert System (EAS) broadcast station for
information from state officials.
This test is the second of two semi-annual
tests in 2016.
