Indian Point Siren Test Fails Again

September 15, 2005

In response to the problems with the Indian Point siren test last night, County Executive Andy Spano released the following statement:

“How many times does the system have to fail before immediate action is taken? How many times are we going to get conflicting reports – Entergy says one thing, the four counties say another. My job is to keep Westchester residents safe and secure – and this becomes harder with a siren system that lacks credibility. If Entergy can’t get the sirens to work after multiple assurances, I question any assertions they make regarding the integrity and safety of the rest of the plant, which is far more complex.

That’s why I want Indian Point closed. And that is what I intend to say this afternoon at my meeting with Homeland Security,” said County Executive Andy Spano.

Spano will meet with Dr. Patricia Burt, Nuclear Unit Chief with the Department of Homeland Security, this afternoon to discuss siren tests and other Indian Point issues.
