Emergency Programs


When Emergency Programs is not responding to a disaster, our team works with a variety of internal and external partners to prepare for all hazards response. Some of these activities include establishing plans and procedures, developing technological tools, maintaining equipment, participating in specialized training, conducting simulated drills and exercises, and evaluating capability to respond effectively.

Carbon Task Force

The North Carolina Carbon Task Force is a collaborative effort of agencies dedicated to locating carbon materials for composting animal mortalities and coordinating training for Composting Subject Matter Experts (SMEs). These trained and credentialed SMEs plan and implement composting operations during disease and disaster events.

This GIS product assists incident management personnel coordinating composting efforts by locating suitable carbon sources close to impacted farms for a more efficient, cost effective, and timely response.
