Partners from Wilmington, NC Police Department, New Hanover County Sheriff's Office, Cape Fear Public Utility Authority, Town of Carolina Beach Government, NC, and Station Sunny Point joined us for a class on how to manage complex incidents using Unified Command processes. We focused on the tools and resources to help build incident action plans *together* and will use these resources for real life incidents and events. #ReadyNHC #PlanningP

It’s hard to believe it’s been more than a year since #HurricaneFlorence. A lot of work has been done but recovery takes time and is ongoing. We are grateful to work alongside our community partners and won’t stop until we’re fully recovered.
