CORTLANDT MANOR, N.Y. -- The Indian Point Energy Center emergency notification sirens will sound during a test of the system on Wednesday 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.
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. An electronic version of the booklet is posted on the Indian Point website at www.safesecurevital.com . Additional information about emergency planning related to Indian Point can be found on the New York State Office of Emergency Management’s website, www.nyalert.gov/IP_Home.aspx .
