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!
