North Carolina Coastal Region Evacuation and Sheltering (CRES) SOG Workshop

March 5th, 2020

The purpose of the Coastal Region Evacuation and Sheltering Standard Operating Guide (CRES-SOG) is to support in-county response and operations as required to prevent the loss of life and/or property. The CRES-SOG provides a structural framework to establish specific State responsibilities and tasks for operational support of a coordinated and effective evacuation from the 20 North Carolina coastal counties. These coastal counties border the Sounds and the Atlantic Ocean and have a long history of executing evacuations for storm systems of varying strengths. This document outlines five critical components related to storm response: evacuation, sheltering, transportation, the sheltering and evacuation of populations with access and functional needs, and public information.
