FPL Testing Individual Emergency Sirens Through March
- LUCIE COUNTY – In addition to the quarterly test of the outdoor warning system for the St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant on Thursday, March 3 at noon, Florida Power & Light Company will conduct individual maintenance and testing on each of the 90 sirens within the 10-mile St. Lucie plant emergency planning zone.
Starting Monday, Feb. 28 through the end of March, FPL staff will check each siren with a pre-announcement and post-announcement check and a 10-second air horn sounding. Work will be done between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. each day, Monday through Friday. This will be done for each siren one at a time until all have been checked.
In the unlikely event of an actual emergency at the 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.
