Entergy To Test Indian Point Siren System Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2011
BUCHANAN, N.Y. – The Indian Point Energy Center emergency notification sirens will sound during a test of the system on Tuesday, November 15 between 10:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. During this test, the sirens will sound at full-volume for approximately four minutes in Westchester, Rockland, Orange and Putnam counties.
BECAUSE THIS IS ONLY A TEST, NO RESPONSE ON THE PART OF THE PUBLIC IS NECESSARY DURING THE SIREN SOUNDING.
PLEASE REMEMBER: 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. These books are also posted on the Indian Point web site – www.safesecurevital.com
