There will be a test of the Indian Point sirens in Westchester, Rockland, Putnam and Orange Counties on Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at approximately 10:30 a.m. 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.
This is ONLY A TEST. No action by the public is necessary.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Rockland County Office of Fire & Emergency Services at 845-364-8800 should you have any questions.
