Hurricane preparedness sign with text Hurricane Season is Here, Know Your Zone

The North Carolina Department of Public Safety recently announced the Know Your Zone campaign to help coastal residents and visitors get the information they need in the event of an evacuation.

Use the online tool and know your zone. Then, learn more about preparing for hurricanes.

“The goal of Know Your Zone is to educate coastal residents and visitors about their evacuation zones so that everyone knows the zone they live in and knows to look and listen for that zone when evacuations are ordered,” said Public Safety Secretary Erik Hooks. “Knowing your zone and when to evacuate can save lives.”
