HARRISBURG, PA (June 1, 2017) – Dauphin County Commissioners Jeff Haste, Mike Pries and George P.

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 first of two semi-annual tests in 2017.
