LELAND, NC (WECT) – Duke/Progress Energy is building a new off-site emergency location in Leland.

The new facility, located on Village Road near the US 74/76 overpass, will house the company's joint information center and emergency command center as part of the Brunswick emergency response program.

Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, officials hope the facility will be operational by the middle of February.
