Duke Energy emergency drill tonight and Thursday
If you see lights, sirens and emergency traffic tonight and Thursday in the area north of Spencer, it’s a Duke Energy drill at Buck Station.
Duke Energy will host an emergency training exercise with local fire department, emergency management and rescue squad officials. This is only a drill. Approximately 65 people responding in rescue vehicles, including ambulances and firetrucks, will participate each night.
Neighbors have been alerted. This exercise familiarizes local emergency response teams with the plant site so that they are prepared to respond in a real emergency.
Duke Energy conducts emergency response exercises every six months, and every few years, local first responders are invited to participate. These exercises strengthen the relationships between the plant staff and local emergency officials and allows responders to learn more about the plant and how to safely respond to any emergency.
This exercise is closed to the public.
