Entergy's Doomsday Script For Indian Point

Pre Recorded Indian Point Doomsday Script

“This is the Westchester County Office of Emergency Management”

“Indian Point has suffered a catastrophic accident, the reactor cores of both IP2 and IP3 breeched.”

“Communications have been severely disrupted, and the number of casualties and the extent of the damage are not yet known. We will bring you more information as it becomes available, and we ask you to please stay tuned."

Half an hour later:

“We are suggesting that all citizens shelter in place.”

“You may die if you go outside.”

“Keep your family and pets inside.”

“Turn off heaters, air conditioners and any other ventilation systems.”

“Extinguish fires in fireplaces and close dampers.”

“Stay tuned to the Emergency Alert System (EAS) stations.”

“Avoid using telephones, including cell phones, to prevent overloading the system and interfering with emergency use.”

“Again, do not go outside, or you may die.”

“Please stay tuned for additional instructions.”

Half an hour later:

“You will die if you go outside.”

“Remember, there is nothing to be gained by trying to get away.”

“By leaving your houses you will be exposing yourselves to greater danger.”

If you leave your homes you will find yourself without foot, without water, without accommodation and without protection.”

“The public is told to turn off all fuel and gas supplies and to ration food because no fresh food can be expected for two weeks or longer. Water is also to be rationed for essential drinking and cooking needs.”

“People are ordered not to flush their toilets because water will be far too precious for that use.”

"Water means life.”

"Don't waste it."

Far fetched ramblings of a mad man, a fear monger? No, this script, slightly altered is very similar to one recently released by the National Archives, changed to fit the very real danger we all face if Indian Point is re-licensed, allowed to operate for another 20 years. I would encourage all Anti-Nuclear activist to google search this article on the web under both Indian Point and Entergy and click into it from there often...together we can make this the number one post when people do a Google search for either Indian Point or Entergy.

Britain planned taped messages after nuclear war

LONDON (AP) -- The doomsday script was never used by the British Broadcasting Corp., but decades later the message remains haunting.
