This week is hurricane preparedness week for 2015.

All week long the National Weather Service has issued informative
messages to help you prepare for the hurricane season. Each day
has covered a different topic. Todays topic... the final in the
series for this years hurricane preparedness week... is about
taking
action!

Fema, NOAA, and North Carolina emergency management are just one
part of the emergency management team that works to prepare and
respond to disaster. A key member of the team is the public. That
is why we are encouraging everyone to do their part pledge to
prepare... and prepare now... so that you know what do when
hurricanes strike. During this preparedness week we ask you to
pledge to prepare... complete your emergency preparedness
plan... create or update your emergency kit... and finally share
your story.

Pledge to prepare by visiting http://www.Readync.Org. Then after
youve made your preparedness plan and created or updated your
emergency kit... be an example by sharing what you have done...
with your friends... family... and coworkers. Share your story with
your family and friends through your social network - create a
youtube video... Post your story on facebook... or send a tweet.

Finally... remember that when a Hurricane Watch is issued for your
area you should check your disaster supply kit. Make sure nothing
is missing. Determine if there is anything you need to supplement
your kit and replenish your water. Then activate your family
disaster plan. Protective measures should be initiated... especially
those with coastal property including houses and boats.

When a Hurricane Warning is issued you should ready your disaster
supply kit for use. If you need to evacuate... you should bring
your supply kit with you. Use your family disaster plan. Your
family should be in the process of completing protective actions
and deciding the safest location to be during the storm.

History teaches that a lack of hurricane awareness and
preparation are common threads among all major hurricane
disasters. By knowing your vulnerability and what actions you
should take... you can reduce the effects of a hurricane disaster.
