Residents across the area should be aware there will be a test of the Indian Point sirens in Westchester, Rockland, Putnam and Orange counties at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.

This sounding is only a test. If there were an emergency at the nuclear power plants, the sirens would be sounded continuously at full volume for four minutes Westchester, Rockland, Orange, and Putnam counties,, followed by an activation of the Emergency Alert System on radio and television stations to broadcast important information and instructions.

The sirens are not a signal to evacuate; rather they are intended to alert the public to tune in to an EAS radio or TV station for important information.  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.safesecurevital.com .

The siren sounding on Wednesday is only a test. No action by the public is necessary.
