Severe Weather Preparedness Week


2020 Severe Weather Preparedness Banner

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 activities, often including: 

  • Tornado Drill (conducted in partnership with Pitt County Schools)
  • A Proclamation from the Pitt County Board of Commissioners
  • Roadside banners and signage
  • Featured graphics on the Pitt County Website
  • Special posts on the PCEM Social Media pages
  • Special programming on PittTv (Suddenlink Cable - channel 13)

Check back to this page often, as it will be updated with specific details as Severe Weather Preparedness Week gets closer.
