Entergy will conduct a test of the Indian Point Sirens on Wednesday, Oct. 22 begining at 10:30 a.m. All the sirens in the new system will be sounded for four minutes at full volume. This is only a test. No response on the part of the public is necessary.
In an actual emergency, the sirens would sound continously at full volume for four minutes, followed by the broadcast of an Emergency Alert System (EAS) message on radio and television stations. Sirens are not a signal to evacuate; but rather for people to tune to an EAS radio or TV station for information and instruction.
Once again the siren system sounding on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. is only a test. No action on the part of the public is necessary.
