GE employees are better prepared for a hurricane, thanks to the company's hurricane expo. The second annual event took place all day on GE's campus. Various agencies and companies supplied hurricane information and hand-outs to employees who stopped by. Among those in attendance were New Hanover Regional Medical Center, New Hanover County fire services, and the American Red Cross. The expo is especially helpful for new GE employees who have moved here from different regions. GE emergency preparedness leader Matt Allen said, "We're hoping people walk away with an appreciation of hurricane season, what it means, how they can better prepare themselves, their families, so they feel more comfortable in the event a hurricane does hit this area. They're prepared, they know what to do and take the proper course of action." NewsChannel 3 meteorologist Sonya Stevens represented our station. She talked about how people can prepare for severe weather, and answered questions from GE employees.
