- Provide the public with proper risk information and availability of early warning systems for events to the extent possible.
- Ensure community level resilience through empowering individuals and communities to make informed decisions to facilitate actions as necessary to adapt to, withstand, and quickly recover from future incidents.
- Achieve a measurable decrease in the long-term vulnerability of North Carolina against all hazards.
- Identify all threats and hazards most likely to impact North Carolina based on sound science and through coordination and collaboration with local, state, and federal agencies. 6. Complete risk and disaster resilience assessments at the local level, defining localized vulnerabilities and consequences associated with potential hazards.
