BRUNSWICK COUNTY — Thirty-eight warning sirens will be tested mid-October within 10 miles of the Brunswick Nuclear Plant.
Duke Energy has scheduled the sirens to blare at full volume between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 11, to ensure proper functionality. The sirens may be tested more than once, with sirens operational for 3 minutes.
“Testing is performed in cooperation with emergency officials in Brunswick and New Hanover counties, who are responsible for sounding the sirens,” according to a press release.
Regular programming on local broadcasting stations will not be interrupted. If it were an emergency, the Emergency Alert System (EAS) messages would air on radio and television stations, with important instructions disseminated to the public.
