North Carolina Division of Emergency Management

116 W. Jones Street, Raleigh, 27699-4713, NC, USA
North Carolina is the second state most prone to hurricanes.

Every family needs to have enough food, water and personal hygiene items to live on their own for at least three days; I recommend you prepare for seven days or more. Know where you will go if you must evacuate, have a point of contact out-of-state for family members to call if they get separated and include your pets in your plans (many shelters now accept pets).

Much of the work we do in the Division of Emergency Management is planning, preparing, training and organizing response capability for disasters. We also work with our partners at the local, state and federal levels of government to develop and provide recovery assistance in the aftermath of disasters. I urge you to do the same planning with your family.
