Pilgrim Plant to Test Prompt Alert Notification System

PLYMOUTH – The Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station in Plymouth will be conducting a test of the Prompt Alert Notification System on November 14 at 3:45 p.m.

The system of sirens within the 10-mile radius of the station consists of a steady alarm tone lasting three minutes.

The public does not have to take action due to the test.

In the event of an actual emergency at the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station, the alarm would be used to alert the public, with more official information being relayed via the Emergency Alert System.

The station was recently sold for decommissioning to Holtec International after ceasing operations in May.

For more information on the test, call the station at 508-830-8280.
