Dare County and the National Weather Service to Host Virtual Hurricane Preparedness Forum

Dare County Emergency Management Director Drew Pearson will be joined by Erik Heden, the NWS local Warning Coordination Meteorologist, for a virtual Hurricane Preparedness Forum on Wednesday, July 29, 2020 at 10:30 a.m. The forum will discuss important information on personal preparedness actions and updates on weather service forecast products. Topics will include adapting preparedness efforts to meet the challenges presented by COVID-19 and why it’s important to never just focus on the category of a storm but instead focus on the impacts.  Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask questions.

Register for the virtual forum here. Internet access is required.

If you have questions about the forum, please contact Drew Pearson at 252.475.5655 or drew.pearson@darenc.com.
