Entergy to Test Indian Point Siren System
BUCHANAN, New York – The Indian Point Energy Center emergency notification sirens will sound during a regular quarterly test of the system on Wednesday, March 24 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.
PLEASE NOTE: 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 Emergency Alert System (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 web site, www.entergy.com
