Severe Weather Preparedness Week occurs every year during the month of March, just prior to when the severe weather "season" typically begins in North Carolina. It serves as an opportunity to increase awareness of and response to severe weather hazards.
Pitt County Emergency Management (PCEM) recognizes this week through a full schedule of preparedness messaging, often including:
Roadside banners and signage
Featured graphics on the Pitt County Website
Special posts on the PCEM, Public Health Department (PCHD) and Pitt County Schools (PCS) Social Media pages
Special programming on PittTv (Suddenlink Cable - channel 13)
