NCEMA Fall Conference Greetings Emergency Managers:
On behalf of the North Carolina Emergency Management Association I would like to invite you to attend the upcoming Fall Conference to be held in Sunset Beach, October 12th through the 15th.
2014 has proven to be a year for history making. Instead of fireworks on the 4th of July, North Carolina coastal counties were impacted with a Category 2 hurricane. This was right behind our snow, our ice storms and our tornadoes. It is imperative that we continue to work to develop and strengthen relationships between public and private partners to enhance our ability to mitigate the effects of disasters and other responses. Only in unison can we truly make the greatest difference.
Thank you for all that you continue to do every day for the citizens of North Carolina. It is an extreme honor to work with each and every one of you. I look forward to seeing you in Sunset Beach.
Respectfully, Jo Ann Spencer NCEMA President
North Carolina Emergency

Resolve to be Ready This year's Resolve to be Ready campaign focuses on 'Family Connection' to reinforce the importance of parents including their children in preparedness conversations in advance of potential disasters. The Ready campaign makes an emergency preparedness resolution easy to keep by recommending families consider these three ideas when making a plan: who to call, where to meet and what to pack.
