You and your family’s safety is our first concern. Westchester and Putnam Counties, New York State, and Entergy Nuclear Northeast have jointly developed special plans to protect you and your family should there be an emergency at Indian Point.
How would I know there’s an emergency? Alert sirens are located throughout the 10-mile area around Indian Point. These sirens would sound continuously for three to five minutes. The siren is not a signal to leave the area. It is a signal to tune in to an Emergency Alert System (EAS) radio or television station. Emergency broadcasts on these stations will provide instructions on what you should do. The sirens are tested at different times during the year. Scheduled tests are announced in the news media.
