Ready Kit Checklists: To help make sure you are prepared for any other major weather event, PCEM has developed “Ready Kit Checklist” cards. These cards feature a checklist of items needed for every “Ready Kit,” along with basic information on hurricane classification and emergency contact information.
Ready Kit Checklists can be obtained for individuals, groups, or civic organizations by contacting the Emergency Management Department at 252-902-3950.
Both English and Spanish language Checklists can also be downloaded and printed by clicking the links below:
