BUCHANAN, N.Y. – The Indian Point Energy Center tested its 172 emergency notification sirens between 10:30-11 a.m. Wednesday.
All emergency sirens sounded at full volume for approximately four minutes in Westchester, Rockland, Orange, and Putnam counties.
In a true emergency, the sirens would alert the public to tune into emergency radio or television stations for information and direction. This information is an emergency booklet mailed to households and businesses in the 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone around Indian Point. An electronic version of the booklet is available at the Indian Point web site .
