☢️ Nuclear Power Plant Meltdown ☢️​​​​​​​
As the host county for Harris Nuclear Power Plant, Wake County is identified as a Harris Nuclear Plant risk county.
This means Wake County Emergency Management oversees a robust nuclear preparedness program. Staff maintain emergency plans, conduct trainings and exercises, and coordinate closely with Duke Energy, neighboring risk counties, the State of North Carolina and various federal agencies to ensure public safety. In the unlikely event of an emergency at the Harris Nuclear Power Plant, Wake County Emergency Management will coordinate activities to warn, notify and protect the public.
