Indian Point Will Test Emergency Notification Sirens Wednesday

Photo Credit: File

CORTLANDT MANOR, N.Y. -- The Indian Point Energy Center emergency notification sirens will sound during a test of the system on Wednesday between 10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m.

As part of this test, sirens will sound at full-volume for approximately four minutes in Westchester, Rockland, Orange and Putnam counties.

Because this is only a test, the public is not required to respond during the siren sounding.

Sirens are not a signal to evacuate. In an actual emergency the sirens would sound to alert the public to tune in to a local EAS radio or television station for important information and direction.

These stations are listed in the emergency planning booklet mailed to households and businesses in the 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone around Indian Point. An electronic version of the booklet is posted on the Indian Point website at www.safesecurevital.com. Additional information about emergency planning related to Indian Point can be found on the New York State Office of Emergency Management’s website, www.nyalert.gov/IP_Home.aspx.
