A full-volume test of the Indian Point Energy Center siren system will be conducted between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Wednesday, July 30th throughout the 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone (EPZ) around Indian Point.
During this full-system activation test, sirens will sound simultaneously for four minutes. The sirens will sound at full volume for the entire duration of the test. No action on the part of the public is necessary or required for this drill.
If the sirens were sounded during an actual emergency, residents would listen to an Emergency Alert System (EAS) radio or television station for information and instructions about any action to be taken. Sounding the sirens is a signal for residents to listen to EAS broadcasts for important information. It is NOT a signal to evacuate.
