Indian Point will be testing all 172 of its emergency sirens at full volume in Westchester, Putnam, Rockland and Orange counties at approximately 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Entergy’s nuclear power plant is in the village of Buchanan, in the town of Cortlandt.

Emergency officials are emphasizing that this is only a test. It will be followed by a message from the Emergency Alert System (EAS) on radio and television stations.

If there were a real emergency, the same radio and television stations would broadcast important information and instructions.

In this case, the sirens are not a sign to evacuate and no action by the public is required, officials said.

For a list of EAS stations, refer to your county's Indian Point Emergency Guide "Are you ready?"
