ANNUAL SIREN TEST SET SEPT. 22 IN COMMUNITIES NEAR SAN ONOFRE

 SAN ONOFRE, Calif., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- A system of more than 50 community alert sirens in the vicinity of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station will be tested Wednesday, Sept. 22, according to Southern California Edison, operator of the energy facility.
 All of the sirens will be sounded twice, for two to five minutes between 10 a.m. and noon. Sirens are located at the San Onofre State Park, Camp Pendleton, and in the communities of San Clemente, San Juan Capistrano, Dana Point and unincorporated areas of south Orange County.
 Flyers and posters announcing the scheduled test have been distributed and mailed to inform residents in the communities near the San Onofre power plant. The test is being conducted in cooperation with local governmental agencies and jurisdictions.
 The sirens are required by federal regulations in the event of a nuclear emergency. They are intended to advise residents to turn on their radios or television sets for emergency instructions, an Edison spokesperson said. The sirens also may be used by local government to inform residents of other emergency conditions.
