Now that the Indian Point power plant is updating their emergency warning system, East Village community leaders are fighting to get a siren that sounds in their neighborhood.
Orange County Legislator Noel Spencer (D) says East Village, just east of the New York State Thruway, is officially part of the plant?s emergency planning zone. However, area residents might not immediately know if the plant is experiencing an emergency because warning sirens don?t sound in the area. As it stands now, people in East Village would be notified of an emergency by a person going door to door.
Entergy, the company that operates the plant, said through a statement that if the county decides a siren is necessary for East Village, the area will get one.
