EAD Carcass Collection Program

The Environmental Affairs Department is a participating drop off location for the North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries (NCDMF) Carcass Collection program.  During the flounder recreational season,  the NCDMF is working to collect as much data as possible. Anglers can donate their flounder carcasses at marked freezer locations along the coast. Anglers that donate their legal flounder carcasses and provide a completed carcass collection catch card, including contact information, will receive an angler award. The MCAS Cherry Point freezer is located at Bldg 4223. For more information on the Carcass Collection Program, visit https://deq.nc.gov/carcass-collection-program 


Safety & Standardization Message

Motorists risk children's lives when they fail to stop for the school bus as it loads and unloads its passengers. Yet it's estimated that over 10 million drivers illegally pass school buses every year. To keep children safe, start by learning the laws in your state. It's illegal to pass a school bus within the roadway as it drops off or picks up passengers-regardless of the direction of approach. Remember that there is no "safe" way to illegally pass the school bus, so be cautious when sharing the road with it. Finally, let others know that putting kids' lives at risk is not OK. Report aggressive drivers and spread the word by sharing material found at schoolbusfacts.com.  Take a pledge to brake for the school bus!
