In wake of Hurricane Matthew, a redevelopment community meeting set for March 2, 2017

PENDER COUNTY – The Pender County Office of Emergency Management announced the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) will host a meeting with NC Emergency Management (NCEM) on March 2, 6 p.m. “The flooding following Hurricane Matthew was devastating to several of our Pender County communities,” said Tom Collins, Pender County Emergency Manager. “On March 2 we welcome the public to meet officials from the NCEM as they develop a Resilient Redevelopment Plan for Pender County.” Gov. Roy Cooper urges residents from Pender County to participate in the redevelopment plan. “Each of the 49 counties with a federal disaster declaration is asked to develop a Resilient Redevelopment Plan, which will be the foundation for any supplemental funding requests from Congress, the NC General Assembly, and other sources,” said Cooper. According to Collins, the focus of the meeting will be residential housing and long-term rentals, infrastructure, ecosystem, and economic development. “The Resilient Redevelopment Plan (RRP), with community input, will identify needs in Pender County and help us develop strategic plans and actions,” said Collins. The March 2 meeting is open to the public. The Pender County EOC is located at 805 Ridgewood Dr. in Burgaw. For more information, call the EM office at 910-259-1210. -END-

PENDER COUNTY, NC – Pender County is urging residents impacted by Hurricane Matthew to attend a session on future grant funding assistance. “This is an opportunity to seek long-term housing assistance through FEMA and the State of North Carolina that will help in rebuilding resilient communities,” said Kyle M. Breuer, Director, Pender County Planning and Community Development. County and State officials will be on-hand Tuesday, Feb. 14, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Wednesday, Feb. 15 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. to answer questions and help individuals apply for Hazard Mitigation Grant Program funding. This funding will provide 100 percent of the costs to elevate, reconstruct, or acquire flood or wind damaged structures in Pender County from the effects of Hurricane Matthew. Both meetings will be held at the Pender County Administrative Building, 805 S. Walker Street, Burgaw. “We want to get assistance to as many citizens as we can that were impacted by the storm,” said Breuer. Additional information can be found on the Pender County website at http://www.pendercountync.gov. If you need assistance call the Planning and Community Development office at 910- 259-1202.

Pender County residents urged to sign up for CodeRed
 
PENDER COUNTY – The Pender County Office of Emergency Management urged residents to sign up for the free weather-alert system, CodeRed.
 
“With the recent loss of the Winnabow transmitter, Pender County residents will not receive NOAA weather alerts on their weather radios,” said Tom Collins, Pender County Emergency Manager. “We urge our residents to sign up for CodeRed, a free alert system for Pender County.”
 
Collins said the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather radio transmitter in Winnabow is damaged. He said it was most likely damaged during Hurricane Matthew but the recent winter weather caused the failure.
 
According to the National Weather Service, repairs could take up to six months or more.
 
CodeRed is an Emergency Notification System which enables the Pender County Office of Emergency Management to alert citizens to emergency situations via smartphone, text alert, or on a land line.
 
“Residents can sign-up through our website from your smartphone or computer,” said Collins. “It’s a free service and it takes only minutes to register.”
 
Collins said he urges residents to sign up today because the Winnabow transmitter will remain out of commission through the remainder of the winter, into spring thunderstorm and tornado weather, and possibly into the 2017 hurricane season.
 
“The Winnabow transmitting tower serves Pender County, as well as Bladen, Brunswick, Columbus, and New Hanover counties,” said Collins. “There is possible damage to the antennae, which is 450-ft. from the ground. The weather service believes there is significant damage to part of the antennae cable, which is 200-ft. below the antennae. It’s not an easy or overnight fix.”
 
To register, visit the Pender County website at pendercountync.gov/CodeRed.
 
Pender County Emergency Management is available to assist. Call the Emergency Management office at 910- 259-1210.
