St. Lucie County Aquatics

SOUTH HUTCHINSON ISLAND – Martin County’s Emergency Management Agency, St. Lucie County’s Department of Public Safety and Communications and Florida Power & Light (FPL) Company will conduct quarterly testing of the outdoor warning sirens for the St. Lucie nuclear power plant on Thursday, Sept. 3 at noon.

The test will involve a one-minute sounding of all 90 sirens within the 10-mile St. Lucie plant emergency planning zone. Before and after the sirens sound, a message will be broadcast on the sirens’ public-address system stating, “This is only a test.”

FPL, St. Lucie and Martin counties regularly test the siren system to improve public awareness of its function and ensure its operability.
