After last Saturday's fire in a transformer site at Indian Point, which caused the plant to be shut down for a period of time, we wanted to help pass the word that tomorrow there will be a planned full-volume siren test at Indian Point. According to the Office of the Orange County Executive, tomorrow's safety drill was planned months before Saturday night's event.

According to Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus, Commissioner of Emergency Services Walter C. Koury and Orange County Deputy Commissioner Craig Cherry, a full-volume test of the Indian Point Energy Center siren system will be conducted between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. tomorrow, Wednesday, May, 13 throughout the 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone around Indian Point, including the sirens in Orange County.

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. You don't need to do anything for this drill. However, if the sirens were sounded during an actual emergency, you would need to listen to an Emergency Alert System (EAS) radio or television station for information and instructions about any action to be taken.

For more information, including a list of EAS stations, please refer to the Orange County Indian Point Emergency Guide 'Are you ready?'or visit Orange County’s Department of Emergency Management at
