Buchanan – The Indian Point Energy Center emergency notification sirens will sound during a test of the system on Wednesday, August 14 between 6:00 p.m. and 6:30 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. An electronic version of the booklet is posted on the Indian Point web site www.safesecurevital.com.
Additional information on Indian Point emergency planning can be found on the New York State Office of Emergency Management web site www.nyalert.gov/IP_Home.aspx/FAQs/FAQs.aspx.
