​Wake County Activates Emergency Operations Center

Wake County has activated its Emergency Operations Center to prepare to respond to potential impacts of Hurricane Florence.

Wake County Emergency Management reminds people to:

  • Monitor news reports and weather forecasts.
  • Be ready to leave home, if necessary.
  • Take your home emergency kit with you if you evacuate. If you don’t have an emergency kit or communication plan, it’s not too late to create them.
  • Stay away from floodwaters.
  • Do not walk or drive through flooded areas. You or your car could be swept away.

Wake County residents who have non-emergency questions or issues can contact Wake County at 919-856-7044.

Members of the media who need to contact the Communications Office staff member on duty in the Wake County Emergency Operations Center should call 919-856-7036 or email communications@wakegov.com.
