SMYRNA, Del.- Officials in Delaware are conducting a quarterly test of the sirens and notification system that would alert the public to an emergency at the Salem and Hope Creek Nuclear Generating Stations.
    
Sirens will sound during the emergency test from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 6. Officials say the 37 sirens located within 10 miles of the stations, which are located across the Delaware River in New Jersey, will be activated for three to five minutes. The sirens are the same ones that would alert the public in the event of an actual emergency.
    
The tests will be followed by a test message of the emergency alert system on local radio stations.
    
The Delaware Emergency Management Agency and Delaware State Police are conducting the test.
