Expect Indian Point Sirens on Sept. 21

Full-volume test will take place at 6 p.m.

Entergy will conduct a four-minute, full-volume test of the Indian Point siren system at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 21. 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 pcbes.org/ipec. 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 is available at safesecurevital.org.
