Individual Siren Testing for St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant Taking Place March 7-10
Martin County Emergency Management Agency, St. Lucie County Department of Public Safety, and Florida Power & Light Company, will conduct individual testing on each of the 90 outdoor warning sirens for the St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant starting Tuesday, March 7 through Friday, March 10 between 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
This process involves testing each siren individually including a pre-recorded message (This is a test), a 20-second air horn, and a post-recorded message (This was a test).
FPL and St. Lucie and Martin counties regularly test the siren system to improve public awareness of its function and ensure its operability.
In the unlikely event of an actual emergency at St. Lucie plant, the sirens would sound for at least a five-minute period. Official instructions or information would follow on local radio and television.
