SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - If you hear some noise Tuesday or Wednesday, don't worry it's just a drill. Diablo Canyon Power Plant is working on their emergency alert systems and will be making some noise.
According to their release, Tuesday and Wednesday, October 2, and 3, the Early Warning System sirens located in the Diablo Canyon Emergency Planning Zone (EPZ) will undergo "growl tests". Each of the 131 sirens throughout the EPZ will be tested individually for a period of a few seconds. This is only a test and no action is requested or required of the public.
The Early Warning System sirens were installed as one of the requirements for the Diablo Canyon Power Plant. The siren system can be used for any major local emergency where there is a need to alert large numbers of people to tune to a local radio or television station to get information related to the emergency, including actions the public may need to take.
The Early Warning System sirens cover an area extending from Cayucos in the North to the Nipomo Mesa in the South. The siren coverage area includes the northern Nipomo Mesa, the Five Cities Area, Avila Bay, See Canyon and Squire Canyon areas, Price Canyon area, Baywood Park/Los Osos, City of San Luis Obispo, Morro Bay and Cayucos areas.
Additional information on emergency preparedness can be found on the County OES web site at http://www.slocounty.ca.gov/oes
Questions regarding the tests can be answered by the County Office of Emergency Services by calling (805) 781-5011.
