September is National Preparedness Month, and there is no better time to prepare for emergencies than right now as Hurricane Florence heads toward the East Coast. While Florence’s direct path is still uncertain, NCCDD wants everyone to prepare for the possibility of this storm having a direct impact on our state by this Thursday, and Governor Roy Cooper has declared a State of Emergency.
NCCDD’s Emergency Preparedness for People with I/DD initiative provided many resources to assist people with I/DD as well as access and functional needs in preparing for hurricanes and other types of emergencies.
