Indian Point Siren Testing
There will be two tests of the new Emergency Alert System Sirens in Westchester, Rockland, Putnam and Orange Counties on Thursday, February 15 between 10:30am and 12 noon.
Residents should be aware that the new sirens do NOT sound like the older versions. Emergency officials will continue to use the older siren system to alert the public during an actual emergency at the plants until the new system is fully completed.
WHUD Radio (100.7 FM) will test the Emergency Alert System immediately after each siren test. Testing of an individual siren in each county will occur during this period.
THERE IS NO ACTION REQUIRED BY THE PUBLIC IN RESPONSE TO THE FEBRUARY 15 SIREN TESTS. THIS IS ONLY A TEST.
