JENKINSVILLE — SCE&G will conduct a test of its V.C. Summer Nuclear Station siren warning system Jan. 7 at approximately 1 p.m.

During the test, SCE&G will sound the 106 sirens located within a 10-mile radius of the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station in Fairfield County near Jenkinsville for approximately one minute. As part of the plant’s regular testing program, all sirens surrounding the plant are sounded each quarter for less than a minute and annually for three minutes.

Area residents are reminded that the sounding of sirens during this time period is only a test. In the unlikely event of an actual emergency at the plant, the sirens would sound with no prior notice and would alert area residents to tune to an Emergency Alert System radio or television station for further instructions.
