Office of Emergency Management

We are all concerned about the potential impact a disaster may have on our lives. The terrorism attacks of September 11th, Hurricane Katrina, and local storms such as Isabel and Gaston demonstrate the importance of being prepared. How can we stay safe? The Office of Emergency Management has created these resources to help you quickly find information on preparing for an emergency.
