QUARTERLY SIREN TEST SCHEDULED FOR PERRY AREA OCT. 13

 NORTH PERRY, Ohio, Oct. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- An audible test of the emergency siren system in Lake, western Ashtabula and northern Geauga counties will be conducted on Wednesday, Oct. 13, at 11 a.m.
 At that time, the 126 sirens located in those areas will be sounded for about three minutes. There will be no verbal announcements during the test.
 The sirens are tested and operated by the Lake, Ashtabula and Geauga County Emergency Management Agencies (EMA). The sirens are available for use in the event of any emergency situation, such as a tornado, chemical spill or event involving the Perry Power Plant. The sirens are used to alert residents; residents should listen to their local Emergency Broadcast System (EBS) station for important information during an actual emergency.
 Concurrent with the testing of the 76 sirens in the Perry Power Plant's Emergency Planning Zone, the Lake County EMA will test its additional 50 sirens throughout western Lake County.
 Federal regulations require full-scale testing of siren systems surrounding nuclear power plants be conducted at least once a year. Locally, a test is completed quarterly -- at 11 a.m. on the second Wednesday of January, April, July and October.
 Questions or concerns about siren testing should be directed to the appropriate county Emergency Management Agency: Lake County, 216-951-5252 or 800-899-5253; Geauga County, 216-285-9200; or Ashtabula County, 216-576-9148 or 800-228-6974.
