Keeping NC Ports Safe

Having materials like PETN shipped into Morehead City, which leaked when a container was punctured Tuesday morning does raise questions over security.

Tighter security measures went into effect in 2008, in response to 9-11.

Every employee, contractor, customer, and anyone accessing the port must have a card that will show not only identity, but provide background checks to police at the gate.
