SEABROOK, N.H. (AP) — The Seabrook Station nuclear power plant, along with emergency management agencies in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, are conducting a test of emergency sirens located within a 10-mile zone of the plant.

Officials say all 121 Public Alert and Notification System sirens will be sounded at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday with a steady tone for three to five minutes. No public action is needed.

Ninety-four of the sirens are in the 17 New Hampshire towns in the Seabrook Station zone.

The demonstration is intended to increase public awareness of what the sirens sound like and of what to do if they should be used in a real emergency. In the event of a real emergency, the sirens would alert people to tune in to local radio or TV stations to get information.
