IP sirens to be tested

BUCHANAN – A full-volume test of all of the sirens in the 10-mile Indian Point nuclear power plant emergency planning zone will be conducted between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Wednesday.

During the four-minute test, the sirens will sound simultaneously. No action is required on the part of the public.

If the sirens were sounded during an actual emergency, residents would listen to an Emergency Alert System radio or TV station for information and instructions about any action to be taken.

The power plant is located in northern Westchester County. The 10-mile zone includes portions of Orange, Putnam, Rockland and Westchester counties.
