BUCHANAN – A full-volume test of the Indian Point nuclear power plant siren system will be conducted tomorrow (Wednesday, May 31) between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. throughout the 10-mile emergency planning zone around the facility.
During the test, sirens will be sounded for four minutes. No action is required by the public during the drill.
If the sirens were sounded during an actual emergency, residents would listen to an Emergency Alert System radio or television station for information and instructions about any action to be taken.
The 10-mile zone includes portions of Westchester, Putnam, Rockland and Orange counties.
