2013 Clairton Plant Emergency Evacuation System Test
WHAT: EMERGENCY EVACUATION SYSTEM TEST
WHERE: U. S. STEEL MON VALLEY WORKS --- CLAIRTON PLANT
400 STATE STREET
WHEN: SATURDAY, JANUARY 12, 2013, 9 A.M.
PITTSBURGH – United States Steel Corporation's Mon Valley Works – Clairton
Plant will conduct a TEST of its emergency system equipment on Saturday,
January 12, 2013, beginning at 9 a.m. This annual test is performed to ensure
that the plant's emergency systems function properly, thus aiding efforts to
protect the safety of our employees and the surrounding communities in the
event of an actual emergency. The TEST will involve the use of emergency
notification devices such as sirens, lights and loud speakers that can be
heard in the areas that surround the facility. The plant's emergency systems
will be activated one area at a time, and there are five distinct areas that
will be tested. The TEST may take up to four hours to complete. U. S. Steel
has notified all local government and emergency agencies, including fire and
police departments, as well as Allegheny County's 911 Call Center. Since this
is a systems TEST only, no employee evacuations will occur and no local
emergency responders will be on scene.
