CARTERET COUNTY, NC – Carteret County Emergency Services Director Stephen Rea will be joined by Erik Heden, the National Weather Service’s local Warning Coordination Meteorologist, for a Hurricane Preparedness Forum at 6 p.m. on Monday, July 25, 2022.
The forum is free and open to the public. Speakers at the forum will share important information on preparedness actions as well as updates on weather service forecast products. Topics will include important preparedness efforts and why it’s important to never focus only upon the category of a storm but instead to focus on the storm’s potential impacts. At the end of the forum, time will be set aside for a community discussion during which attendees can ask questions and share their concerns.
Participants will be able to attend the forum virtually or in person. For the virtual option, internet access is required, and participants must register online by clicking here. Virtual attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions using the chat and/or audio features of the meeting software.
In-person seating is also available at the Crystal Coast Civic Center, which is located at 203 College Circle in Morehead City.
