Are you expected to sit there for 5 minutes timing how long the siren sounds for to determine if you need to switch to one of those radio stations?

They're for the nuclear plant in New Jersey across the Delaware River. They're pretty common between US 40-ish and Smyrna.

They're also found deep in South Jersey around the area of the plant.

You'll hear the sirens for miles.  Like tornado sirens in the midwest, there's no mistaken as you drive along if there's an issue.

My comment was mostly in jest, but still, "if siren sounds for 3 to 5 minutes" seems to imply that if the siren sounds for only two minutes, or for six, then you don't need to tune to those radio stations.

I think they run tests 1-2 times a year but not sure if they run the sirens for 3-5 minutes.  I know the plant near Philly does tests but I lived outside the warning zone (so I don't know how they run the sirens).

FYI, work zone speed cameras are coming back July 8.  They will still be 24/7 unmanned boxes and the trigger is now 11 MPH (not 13 MPH like in the trial).  With the surcharges, fines are basically tripled (the 50% surcharge on the doubled fine basically makes it so).
