Don’t be alarmed, it’s just a test.

There will be a test of the Indian Point Energy Center emergency notification sirens during a regularly quarterly test of the system.

Between 6 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., on Wednesday, Sept. 12, officials will conduct the test, which will involve sounding the sirens at full-volume for approximately four minutes in Westchester, Rockland, Orange and Putnam counties.

Officials noted that, because this is a test, the public is not required to respond when they hear the siren.

“Please note that sirens are not a signal to evacuate,” Entergy stated. “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.”
