    Buchanan - A full-volume test of the Indian Point Siren System will be conducted between 10 and 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 25. During this full-system activation test, all sirens around the Indian Point Nuclear Plants will be activated, including the sirens in Orange County towns of Highlands, Woodbury and Tuxedo. During the test, sirens will sound simultaneously for about four minutes. The sirens will sound at full volume for the entire test. No action on the part of the public is necessary or required for this drill. However, if the sirens were sounded during an actual emergency, residents would listen to an Emergency Alert System radio or television station for information and instructions about any action to be taken. If you have any questions, contact Seamus Leary, Deputy Commissioner for Orange County Emergency Management, at 845-615-0476.
