North Carolina’s Severe Weather Awareness Week- March 3-9, 2013

During the week of March 3-9, 2013, UNC Health Care is partnering with National Weather Service in Raleigh to promote preparedness for severe weather threats in our area. As part of this awareness campaign, North Carolina’s annual statewide tornado drill for 2013 will take place on Wednesday, March 6, at 9:30 a.m.

This year’s theme is Be a Force of Nature and consists of three main components:

  • Know Your Risk
  • Take Action
  • Be an Example

As part of this awareness campaign, North Carolina’s annual statewide tornado drill for 2013 will take place on Wednesday, March 6, at 9:30 a.m. The drill will be broadcast on NOAA Weather Radio and the Emergency Alert System via the Required Monthly Test (RMT). While UNC Health Care will not be participating as a whole, please use this as an opportunity to review your department’s responses to tornado emergency.

If you or your colleagues have any concerns or issues regarding any Emergency Preparedness topic, please contact the Emergency Preparedness Office at disaster@unch.unc.edu.
