Indian Point Emergency? If You Hear a Siren…

March 30, 2011

Worried about a nuclear accident at the Indian Point reactor (or “energy center,” as this map calls it), which sits some 35 miles from Times Square? Here’s the Westchester County government’s advice, posted at Cortlandt Metro-North Station, just 2 miles or so east of the plant. Of course, it raises more questions than it provides answers…

If You Hear a Siren…

…that sounds continuously for 4 minutes, you are being notified of an emergency at the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant (sirens are tested periodically).

  • These sirens are NOT a signal to evacuate. If in a public park, you may be asked to leave.
  • Tune into an Emergency Alert System (EAS) radio or TV station (100.7 FM).


Shelter-in-place: Go inside a nearby building and limit the ways that outside air can enter the building

Evacuate the Area: Leave as soon as possible by car or by emergency bus and monitor the radio

Go to a Reception Center: Reception Centers provide radiological monitoring and social services

Swallow Potassium Iodide (KI), a thyroid blocking age: KI is available at Reception Centers, and KI Distribution Points

In an emergency, radio and television stations will provide a phone number you may call for additional information. Visit
