Homeland Security and Emergency Services

Joint Information Center (JIC)

The Indian Point Joint Information Center is a key component in the ongoing public education campaign promoting preparedness and public safety for residents in the 10-mile emergency planning zone surrounding the Indian Point nuclear power generating site in Buchanan, Westchester County.

The Joint Information Center provides the public with information on planning efforts to protect public health and safety.  Partners in this educational effort are the counties of Orange, Putnam, Rockland and Westchester, New York State, and the plant's licensee, Entergy.

Should an emergency occur at Indian Point, this site will provide the public and the media with official information on response activities being taken by the governmental agencies and the licensee.
