Emergency Management

Spring has sprung. And with those typical wide swings in temperature, often comes severe weather. Be sure your family knows how to be safe when severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, lightning or hail threaten. Follow these simple steps:

1.      Discuss family emergency plans and wwhere to go if tornadoes or severe thunderstorms threaten. (A basement is the best option. Or, go to the lowest floor of the house to an interior room with no windows, such as a hallway, pantry or closet.)

2.      Put together an emergency supply kit and keep it in a location that is easy to access during an emergency.

3.      Have tornado drills at home, work and school. While peak tornado season is in the spring, North Carolina has had tornadoes as early as January and as late as November.

4.      Keep NOAA weather radios turned on when there are threats of severe weather in your area.

Unfortunately, North Carolina is very familiar with severe weather. Last April, nine tornadoes touched down in eastern North Carolina killing one  and injuring 28 others. More than 300 homes were damaged or destroyed.

More information on tornadoes and overall emergency preparedness can be found on www.ReadyNC.org. Residents are also encouraged to get the free ReadyNC mobile app, available for both Android and Apple devices, which provides real-time weather and traffic conditions for all parts of North Carolina.

Take time now to get ready. Those families, businesses and organizations who have plans and supplies in place fare far better during any emergency than those who do not.
