LIMERICK GENERATING STATION EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION

  • The Oley Valley School District is a reception location for radiological emergencies at the Limerick Generating Station.  The information listed below was taken from the Berks County Emergency Management Agency.

  • The Limerick Generating Station, located in Montgomery County, PA, is a nuclear power plant which produces enough power to serve more than two million homes in PA, NJ & MD. Limerick began producing electricity on February 1, 1986 after more than 10 years of construction of the plant.  Limerick Generating Station was built by the Bechtel Power Corporation beginning in June 1974 and uses the Boiling Water Reactor technology to produce electricity.  Although the facility is located in Montgomery County, several municipalities in Berks County are located within a 10 mile radius of the plant. This area, known as the Emergency Planning Zone encompasses seven municipalities which are all, or partially (*) inside of this zone.

WHAT TO DO IN AN EMERGENCY

  • KEEP PHONE LINES OPEN – Do not make unnecessary phone calls. Leaving phone lines open for emergency workers will help everyone involved. If you require assistance, call the emergency phone numbers broadcast on the radio.
  • IF INSTRUCTED TO SHELTER-IN-PLACE – Go indoors and stay there. Close all doors and windows and shut off any systems that draw in outside air, such as furnaces, fireplaces and air conditioners. Keep listening to the radio for updates. Keep pets inside and shelter farm animals.
  • IF INSTRUCTED TO EVACUATE – In an evacuation, people in the affected area will be asked to go to local reception centers. After this, they can stay at specified mass care centers or with friends and relatives outside the evacuation zone.
