Entergy to Test Indian Point Siren System Tuesday

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
