Full Volume Test for Indian Point Sirens set for Wednesday, June 14, 2023, at 10:30 AM

01 June 2023

There will be a full-volume test of the Indian Point siren system in 
Westchester, Rockland, Orange and Putnam counties on Wednesday, 
June 14th, 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.
