National Preparedness Month!

Infograph with Emergency Preparedness, Make a Plan, Build a Kit, Be Informed. Disaster Don't Wait, Make Your Plan Today.Prepare for disasters to create a lasting legacy for you and your family.

Put together an emergency kit that will sustain you and your family for at least 3 days.

Here’s some things to think about while you make your emergency plan:
  • How do you receive emergency alerts and warnings?

Sign up for CurrituckAlert! Up to date, accurate notifications that will help you and your family. Visit CurrituckAlert.com for more information.

  • What is your evacuation and shelter plan?

Currituck County DOES NOT offer pre-hurricane shelters. It is safer to move inland to higher elevations. Currituck County Emergency Management will work with other North Carolina Emergency Management partners to establish a host county for our evacuees.

  • Do you have important phone numbers written down in case your mobile device isn’t available?

The “Currituck County Communications Phonebook (PDF)” starts you off with some important Currituck County numbers and space to fill in your own important phone numbers.

Please visit Make A Kit. Have A Plan. for more preparedness information or contact Currituck County Emergency Management at emstaff@currituckcountync.gov or 252-232-2115.

Happy Planning!

Give Input at
Community Meeting for
Public Inclusive Art Grant

The Currituck Travel & Tourism Department has been awarded a semi-finalist grant by the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation.  This grant is to pursue a full grant for a commissioned piece of Public Inclusive Art. This artwork, a monument/statue, will commemorate the life of John Jasper White, also know as “Currituck Jack,” who was an enslaved sailor during the Revolutionary War period.  His story is little known but is significant to Currituck County and its African American citizens.  There are very few stories of this stature of our enslaved citizens from this era of American history.

To ensure that the County has input and conversation in this project from the community, the tourism department is holding a series of 3 public meetings that will facilitated by Cameron Lowe of the Currituck North Carolina Extension office.  During these meetings, we will tell the story of “Currituck Jack” and ask for thoughts and ideas on this art and what it should embody.

The fourth meeting will be with the artist to present two or three concepts to be reviewed and chosen by the community.

The Currituck Count Board of Commissioners will be reviewing and pre-approving potential County sites for placement in order to give our citizens an opportunity to voice their preference when choosing the final artwork concept.

This is a very prestigious grant for the County if it is awarded, and we should all be proud that our story has received enough recognition to be awarded a semi-finalist grant.

Meetings will be held in upper, middle and lower Currituck to give as much opportunity for our citizens to have their voices heard as possible.  During the meetings, food and childcare will be provided. Please RSVP in advance for a meeting at the Moyock Welcome Center by calling 252-435-2947.  This is to ensure that there is an accurate headcount for food and childcare.

The meetings will be from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on the following schedule:

  • August 8, 2022   |   Corinth Baptist Church – Lower Currituck
  • September 13, 2022    |     Currituck Extension Center – Mid-Currituck
  • September 27, 2022   |   Samuel’s Chapel Holiness Church – Northern Currituck
