Smithfield, NC -- As Hurricane Florence intensifies, wind speeds will continue to be monitored.  Johnston County Emergency Management officials have advised that for the safety of our citizens and Johnston County emergency medical responders, emergency medical response efforts will be suspended if sustained winds reach 40 mph.  This is to prevent the unnecessary loss of life or injury to citizens and emergency medical responders.

Should you experience a ife threatening emergency at any time, please contact 911.  Emergency calls received during a high wind event will be responded to in order of emergency status once the wind speeds have improved.
