With the recent events of Hurricane Florence, we know that many students, faculty and staff will want to volunteer to help in the recovery over the next few weeks and months. We want to let you know that ECU has established a Post Hurricane Recovery Operations Center in Greenville, where it is currently receiving requests for various types of non-emergency recovery assistance from both communities and businesses located throughout Eastern North Carolina.
For those individuals, clubs and organizations at CPCC that would like to help in the recovery, please feel free to go to https://florencerecovery.ecu.edu/ to sign-up and volunteer to help.
The safety of our CPCC community is our primary concern. College safety officials are closely tracking Hurricane Florence and preparing response measures should our campuses be impacted.
North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper recently declared a State of Emergency, which allows the state to begin pre-positioning resources and to request federal assistance in case we have any impact from Hurricane Florence. This declaration does not impact our campus operations, and classes will take place as scheduled unless the college announces otherwise.
To ensure you receive the latest updates concerning the impact of severe weather on the college, we ask all students to update your contact information for CPCC’s Critical Alert emergency notification system now by using your CPCC login and password to access cpcc.regroup.com. The college will use multiple communication channels – including text, phone, email to CPCC email addresses, and the college website – in case there’s urgent information to share. We will also provide the same updates via social media (Facebook @CentralPiedmontCC / Twitter @CPCC).
The NC Department of Public Safety reports the biggest potential threats to areas in the inland parts of the state could be dangerous winds and also flooding from any heavy rains.
It’s important to pay attention to weather updates and be prepared in case of weather-related emergencies. Here are links to additional, helpful websites to help you be ready in case of a weather-related emergency:
