Duke Energy and county officials to test sirens around Brunswick Nuclear Plant

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

SOUTHPORT, N.C. – The outdoor warning sirens around the Brunswick Nuclear Plant will be tested between 10 and 11 a.m. on Wednesday, July 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.

The City of Southport has partnered with DocuPet to provide an enhanced dog licensing experience. DocuPet specializes in creating and managing pet licensing programs. It’s our job to ensure that every dog in the community is licensed. Once compliant, our program offers additional value to guardians through our HomeSafe™ and Pet Perks Programs.

City of Southport pet tags can now be purchased online via the DocuPet Platform at southport.docupet.com, over the phone with a DocuPet customer service representative, via mailed in form, or in person at Southport City Hall.

Only dogs and cats that reside within the city limits of Southport are required to be licensed.

Annual pet licenses cost $15.00 for spayed or neutered pets, or $25.00 for intact animals.
Licenses are valid for 365 days after purchase.

Top 3 Things for Southport Pet Owners to know:
1. All tags will be mailed from DocuPet’s Syracuse office and should arrive within 10-12 business days. It’s important to ensure pet owners provide their correct address!
2. Dogs and cats should wear their tags at all times – this is key to help getting them home in the event they decide to go on an unsupervised adventure.
3. Completing a pet’s profile is important – this means updating the privacy settings to show more information if a dog is lost or found. If someone finds a pet wearing a DocuPet tag, they can look up the tag and depending on the privacy settings, see their guardian’s information.

If nothing shows up the finder can submit a Found Pet Report and the HomeSafe team will then work with the pet finder and pet owner to get that pet home.

Questions? Please contact the DocuPet Customer Service Team at info@docupet.com or 1-877-239-6072 they will happily answer all your questions.
