Nuclear Plant Siren Test — April 10

From Duke Energy:

  • Test scheduled between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Wednesday, April 10.
  • No public action required

The outdoor warning sirens around the Brunswick Nuclear Plant will be tested between 10 and 11 a.m. on Wednesday, April 10. The 38 sirens within 10 miles of the Brunswick Nuclear Plant will sound from five to 30 seconds. This test is performed in cooperation with emergency officials in Brunswick and New Hanover counties, who are responsible for sounding the sirens.

Because this is a test, local broadcasting stations will not interrupt regular programming to broadcast Emergency Alert System (EAS) messages. If there were ever a real emergency at the plant requiring the sirens to be sounded, local radio and television stations would broadcast information and instructions to the public.

For more information about the outdoor warning sirens, residents can refer to information available at www.duke-energy.com/NuclearEP.
