ReadyNC and Community Preparedness

In partnership with the NC Department of Public Safety and the NC Division of Emergency Management, the Commission has a lead role for community preparedness in the state.

In 2005, the Commission helped to create and launch ReadyNC, the state’s disaster preparedness campaign. The campaign includes websites in English ( and accessible for the deaf and hard of hearing. In addition to providing important preparedness information for hurricanes, winter ice storms, tornadoes and other weather events, the websites also describe how to create a Family Preparedness Plan and Disaster Supply Kit.

Since 1998, the Commission has taken an active role in providing preparedness information and training to our network of Volunteer Centers, AmeriCorps members, and vulnerable populations in the state.

ReadyNC has a mobile app that is an all-in-one tool to help people get ready for everything from traffic jams to hurricanes and ice storms. The app gives information on real-time traffic and weather conditions, river levels, evacuations and power outages. It works for both the iPhone and Android phones. Download it today! For people living in or visiting North Carolina, this is an all-in-one FREE tool for emergency preparedness.
