Indian Point Siren Test on April 11 & 12
Entergy will be testing the new Indian Point emergency sirens during the mornings of Wednesday, April 11 and Thursday, April 12. There will be three soundings of the new siren system between 10:30 a.m. and 12 noon on both those days. All 150 sirens in the new system will be sounded at full-volume for approximately four minutes during each test. Additional testing may be conducted in the morning of Friday, April 13 if needed.
Entergy continues to work on completion of this new siren system. The company plans to place the new system in service by Sunday, April 15th.
Until the new system is in service, during an Indian Point Emergency, officials would use the existing siren system to alert the public to tune to their local Emergency Alert System (EAS) radio or TV station for important information. Sounding the sirens is NOT a signal to evacuate. Rather it is a signal for residents to listen to Emergency Alert System broadcasts for important information.
