BUCHANAN – The Indian Point Energy Center emergency notification sirens will sound during a regular quarterly test of the system on Wednesday, November 9 between 10:30 a.m. and 11:00 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.
PLEASE NOTE: 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.
