Entergy is conducting a full-volume test of the
Indian Point siren system in Westchester, Rockland,
Orange and Putnam counties on Wednesday, February 17th
at 10:30 AM. During the test the sirens will sound for four minutes.
WHUD Radio (100.7 FM) will test the Emergency Alert System
immediately following the siren test.
County officials will use the siren system to alert the public during an emergency at Indian Point. A sample of the Siren Sounds can be found at our website. WWW.PCBES.ORG. or WWW.PUTNMAMCOUNTYNY.COM/PCBES
In an actual emergency, all the sirens would sound at full volume for four minutes. Sirens are not a signal to evacuate; but to alert the public to tune to their local Emergency Alert System (EAS) radio or TV station for important information. The EAS stations are listed in the booklet “Are you Ready?” Putnam County Indian Point Emergency Guide which were distributed, as well as available online.
