SEABROOK, N.H. (AP) — The Seabrook Station nuclear power plant and the states of New Hampshire and Massachusetts will be conducting a test of 121 public alert sirens within a 10-mile area around the plant known as the Emergency Planning Zone.

The siren demonstration scheduled for Wednesday is intended to increase public awareness of what the sirens sound like and what to do if they should be used in a real emergency. The sirens will be sounded at 12:30 p.m. with a steady tone for three to five minutes.

No public action is needed.
