Nuclear Notes: Outdoor Warning Sirens

There’s nothing like a siren to get your attention. And that’s exactly why we have a network of more than 400 pole-mounted sirens in the 10-mile areas around our nuclear plants – to make sure residents and visitors in the area are alerted in the unlikely event of an emergency.

We’ve also employed new communication tools, including text notifications and interactive maps, so information is available at your fingertips. Visit and select your local nuclear plant to sign up for texts, find your emergency planning zone, and view upcoming siren test dates.

Watch this episode of Nuclear Notes and know what to do when you hear a nuclear siren.

This new series, Nuclear Notes, is designed to give you a clear picture of the importance of nuclear generation for a clean energy future.
