On January 25, Martin County's Emergency Management Agency, the St. Lucie County Department of Public Safety and Florida Power & Light (FPL) will conduct siren maintenance testing of the outdoor warning sirens for the St. Lucie nuclear power plant. Each of the sirens in Martin County will sound for 20 seconds between 8:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. Before and after the sirens sound, a message will be broadcast on the sirens' public address system stating, "This is only a test." This will be done to each siren individually.

FPL, Martin and St. Lucie counties 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 the St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant, the sirens would sound for at least a five-minute period. Official instructions or information would follow on local radio and television.

Contact Martin County Emergency Management at 772-287-1652 with any questions. Residents are encouraged to follow Martin County Fire Rescue on Facebook at www.facebook.com/MartinCountyFireRescue, Martin County at www,facebook.com/MartinCountyBoardofCountyCommissioners and Martin County on Twitter at @martincountygov.
