Entergy will conduct a full-volume test of the Indian Point siren system on Wednesday, May 31, at 10:30 a.m.
The sirens will sound for four minutes and WHUD (100.7 FM) will test the Emergency Alert System (EAS) immediately following.
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 EAS radio or TV station for important information. EAS stations are listed in the booklet Are you Ready? Putnam County Indian Point: Emergency Guide, which is available online. For additional information, see safesecurevital.org.
