There will be a full-volume test of the Indian Point siren system in Westchester, Rockland, Orange and Putnam counties on Wednesday, September 13th, at approximately 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.
No Response on the part of the public is necessary during these test.
County officials will use the siren system to alert the public during an
emergency at Indian Point. 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 was
distributed, as well as available online.
