Tuesday, October 16
Buchanan – The Indian Point Energy
Center emergency notification sirens will sound during a test of the system on
Tuesday, October 16 between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.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 by 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.
