Alert Sirens have been strategically placed throughout York County within a 10 mile radius of the Catawba Nuclear Plant. The sirens are tested quarterly for maintenance purposes in January, April, July and October on the second Wednesday of the month at 11:50 AM. The test will last for approximately 3 minutes. If the siren is heard at times other then the quarterly tests, York County and Rock Hill residents are asked to turn to one of the local radio stations for updated information.
