Emergency Preparedness - From Natural Disasters to Pandemics
Between natural disasters and the COVID-19 pandemic, emergency preparedness for every assisted living facility was essential in 2020. For the most part, North Carolina avoided the worst of the hurricane season, being only directly affected by 3 of the 30 named storms. But in July, tropical storm Fay spawned 15 tornadoes, including an EF3 that killed 2 people, and injured 14 just south of the town of Windsor. Over 400,000 people lost power in the Carolinas. And Hurricane Isaias weakened to a tropical storm, re-intensified as it approached the Carolina coast line and made landfall near Ocean Isle on August 4th.
To prepare for the 2021 season, NC Senior Living Association is offering a 3-hour CEU training, Emergency Preparedness - from Natural Disasters to Pandemics, on Tuesday, August 10 from 1-4 pm at the NC Emergency Operations Center in Raleigh, NC. This CEU training is available for NCSLA members and non-members. Click HERE to register today! For questions, contact the Association office at (919) 787-3560.
