Wednesday, February 20
Buchanan – The Indian Point Energy
Center emergency notification sirens will sound during a test of the system on
Wednesday, February 20 between 10:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.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. An electronic version of the booklet is posted on the
Indian Point web site
Additional information on Indian
Point emergency planning can be found on the New York State Office of Emergency
Management web site
