Cape Carteret Police Department
North Carolina is planning to adopt new flood plain maps in 2018. There have been public hearings on the subject. If your home is in or adjacent to a flood plain there is a possibility that the change in flood maps could affect flood insurance premiums. If you are concerned that your property may be affected by this change, give me a call at the Town Hall (252 393-7901) and I will check the new maps for your property to see if there is any change in the flood zone where your property is located.

Prescribed burn today, February 22, on Croatan National Forest
The U.S. Forest Service is conducting a 1060-acre prescribed burn on the Croatan National Forest today, Wednesday, February 22.
The burn will take place off of Hwy 24 and Pringle Road, approximately 15 miles south of the District Office. No roads or trails will be closed during this burn, but the public should be aware of the potential for smoke in the area along with firefighter traffic.
Consideration for firefighter and public safety is the highest priority. The goal of the burn is to reduce the amount of fuel on the forest floor to prevent future catastrophic wildfires. The burn will also improve habitat for fire adapted species such as the endangered Red Cockaded Woodpecker and will help restore the longleaf pine ecosystem.
A helicopter will be assisting with the burn operations.
