FROM WESTCHESTER COUNTY:
Entergy will conduct full volume tests of all the new Indian Point sirens tomorrow, Saturday, August 11, at 10 a.m., and Tuesday, August 14, at 10:30 a.m.
During these tests, all the sirens will sound at full volume for four minutes.
No response on the part of the public is necessary.
Residents should be aware that these new sirens do NOT sound like the current sirens. Westchester County officials will use the current siren system to alert the public during an emergency at Indian Point until the new siren system is completed and tested.
In an actual emergency, all the current sirens would sound at full volume for four minutes. Sirens are not a signal to evacuate; but rather alert the public to tune to their local Emergency Alert System (EAS) radio or TV station for important information.
