Peach Bottom nuclear plant to test sirens today

Written by Ben Allen, General Assignment Reporter | Jun 4, 2014 4:00 AM

(Harrisburg) -- The emergency warning sirens at the Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station in York County will sound for three minutes this afternoon at approximately 1:00.

This is the first of two tests every year.

The original sirens were retired in October 2013 and replaced with state-of-the art units that have battery backups.

All of the old devices will be removed by the end of this year.

The second test is scheduled for December.
