A test of the Indian Point emergency sirens is scheduled for September 13, 2023, at 10:30 a.m. in Rockland, Westchester, Putnam, and Orange Counties. Please note that this is only a test, and no action is required from the public.
In a real emergency at the nuclear power plants, the sirens will sound continuously for 4 minutes, followed by the activation of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) on local radio and TV stations for important information. The sirens are not for evacuation but serve as a signal to tune in for updates. Your safety is paramount, and these tests help ensure preparedness.
For further information on emergency preparedness, visit the official Rockland County website or contact local authorities.
This serves as a reminder of the upcoming siren test, emphasizing its importance and the absence of any real emergency.
