Duke siren test
Duke Energy's Walters Hydroelectric Plant will conduct its annual full-volume siren test Wednesday, Dec. 6, between 10 and 11 a.m. Four alert-notification sirens located in Hartford, Denton and Bluffton, Tenn., and one located at the plant in Waterville, will be tested at full volume for approximately three minutes. This test is conducted in cooperation with Cocke County Emergency Management and 911. Because this is a test, local broadcasting stations will not interrupt their regular programming to broadcast emergency alert system (EAS) messages. If there were a real emergency at the plant requiring the sirens to be activated, local radio and television stations would broadcast information and instructions. Duke Energy conducts full-volume tests annually, silent tests every month and low-volume tests every three months. The tests are conducted to ensure that in the unlikely event of a real emergency, neighboring residents could be notified in a timely fashion. Duke Energy coordinates emergency planning with local, state and federal agencies.
