Warning System Testing To Be Conducted July 27 & 28

June 29, 2022 -- Audible testing of the Public Warning System (PWS) will be conducted at the Department of Energy’s Portsmouth Site in Pike County on Wednesday, July 27 and Thursday, July 28, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Testing of the PWS is conducted to ensure the system functions as intended and to familiarize site personnel and the public with the audible warning tones of the sirens. This test will include the actual activation and sounding of the six exterior pole-mounted sirens that surround the DOE site in Piketon.

A public address announcement will be made over each siren speaker prior to activation of the siren stating, “This is a test.”

In the event of a real emergency, announcements will be made over the plant’s public address and radio systems.
