The State of North Carolina can be affected by hazards and disasters of many sizes and levels of severity. As an agency that is responsible for ensuring public safety through Emergency Management when these incidents occur, it is also our responsibility to help educate our citizens on the importance of being prepared for these kinds of incidents. We encourage all citizens to have weather alerts set to come to you on mobile devices and to have weather alert radios in your homes. You can get all the information you need on emergency planning for you and your family from the NC Department of Public Safety by clicking here and from Ready NC by clicking here.
