BUCHANAN, N.Y. Indian Point's emergency notification sirens will sound during a test of the alarm system on Wednesday, Feb. 15, between 10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m.
Sirens will sound at full volume for approximately four minutes in Westchester, Rockland, Orange and Putnam counties. No response on the part of the public is necessary, and Indian Point officials stress that this test of the sirens does not signal the need to evacuate.
During an emergency, the sirens at the nuclear power plant would signal people to tune to a local EAS radio or television station for important information and direction. These stations can be found on the Indian Point website, and in the booklet mailed to people living within the 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone around Indian Point.
