St. Lucie County - Wednesday November 30, 2022: St. Lucie County Public Safety has issued a notice advising that at NOON Thursday, December 1, Florida Power and Light will conduct a routine quarterly test of its outdoor warning sirens for the St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant.

The test will involve a one-minute sounding of all 90 sirens within the 10-mile St. Lucie plant emergency planning zones.

Before and after the sirens sound, a message will be broadcast on the sirens public address system stating, "This is only a test".

Florida Power and Light and St. Lucie County regularly test the siren system to improve public awareness of its function and ensure its operability.

In the unlikely event of an actual emergency at St. Lucie Nuclear Plant, the sirens would sound for at least a five minute period. Official instructions or information would follow on local radio and television.
