North Carolina Emergency Management has various resources to support local emergency managers as they respond to disasters. From highly-trained, specialized teams, to planning support and equipment resources, NCEM is available to support county agencies as they plan, prepare for and respond to emergencies. Some of the resources include:
- All Hazards Incident Management Teams can be deployed to respond to any type of emergency or hazard in various communities across the state.
