Disasters are occurring at an alarming pace and causing millions of dollars in damages. In September, Chatham County narrowly missed devastating impacts as Hurricane Dorian skirted along our coastline. Did you know that during a disaster 60% of individuals affected turn to the religious leader for guidance? Come and join us on Friday, October 18th at the Armstrong Center for the 2019 Chatham County Faith-Based Emergency Preparedness Summit. This year’s event is all about networking! Come and take part in a day of preparedness, learning valuable skills from leading professionals in emergency management. Learn about initiatives already taking place in Chatham County as well as new skills that will assist in our endeavor to make Chatham County Disaster Resilient!
