... Severe weather awareness week in North Carolina March 2-8...
This week has been declared North Carolina's severe weather
awareness week for 2014. In addition, this week is also NOAA and
femas National severe weather preparedness week.
Todays theme is: be a force of nature: be an example - get involved
Building a weather-ready nation requires the action of all of US.
Each and every person across the country has the potential to be a
force of nature when it comes to weather-readiness. Studies show
that individuals need to receive messages a number of ways before
taking appropriate action. Many are more likely to act when the
messages are received from a trusted source- family, friends, or a
community Leader. By sharing your preparedness actions with your
community, you are being a force of nature.
There are many other ways to get involved, especially before a
disaster occurs. The whole community can participate in programs
and activities to make their families, homes and communities safer
from risks and threats. Here are a few ways you can help:
-volunteer to support disaster efforts in your community. Get
trained and volunteer with a community emergency response team,
medical Reserve corps unit and/or other citizen corps partner
program or affiliate organization. Many local Faith-based and
community organizations have programs active in supporting disasters
-Be part of the community planning process. Connect and collaborate
with your local emergency planning group, citizen corps Council or
local emergency management agency.
-Join or start a preparedness project. Find an event or identify
local resources, build a team, choose a project, set goals and serve
your community by improving the preparedness of your friends,
colleagues and neighbors.
-Support major disasters by donating Cash or goods which may help
meet the needs of your community in times of disaster.
This represents only a few of the many ways that individuals and
community organizations can get involved to help communities lessen,
prepare for, respond to and recover from natural disasters. For
additional opportunities that may be unique to your community,
contact your local emergency management agency or citizen corps
Council in your area.
History teaches that a lack of awareness and preparation are common
threads among all major weather threats. Knowing your vulnerability
and what actions you should take can save your life and others.
During this preparedness week, we ask you to be a force of nature
know your risk, take action and be an example by sharing what you
have done, with your friends, family, coworkers, and others. Once
you have taken action, share your story with your family and
friends. You can create a video and Post it to youtube or another
video sharing site, or Post your story on facebook, linkedin,
twitter, or through other social media sites.
