Release Date: August 22, 2022
There will be a test of the Indian Point sirens in Westchester, Rockland, Putnam and Orange Counties on Wednesday, August 24, 2022 at approximately 10:30 AM. This sounding is only a test.
If there were an emergency at the nuclear power plants, the sirens would be sounded continuously at full volume for 4 minutes, followed by an activation of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) on radio and television stations to broadcast important information and instructions. The sirens are not a signal to evacuate. Rather, they are intended to alert the public to tune to this or another EAS radio or TV station for important information. The siren sounding is ONLY A TEST.
