Orange County Insight September 2022

Team Orange,

Earlier this summer, Orange County successfully completed our preparedness drill for the North Anna Nuclear Power Station as we operated out of our new Emergency Operations Center in the Orange County Public Safety Building. Last September I used this spot in our monthly newsletter to highlight National Preparedness Month and what YOU can do to be ready. With disastrous flooding and wildfires out west, and potential hurricanes churning in the Atlantic, this is a good time to think about what we can do to prepare for natural and man - made events that might impact our community. Do you have a family evacuation plan? Do you have an emergency kit/go bag? How will you stay in touch with loved ones if cell service is disrupted? Where would you meet if separated during a storm or road closure? Two years ago we launched Orange County Insight to keep you up to date on happenings with our organization, but since we publish monthly, I want to highlight two other important communication channels, Orange County ’ s Facebook page is available here; and the Orange County Office of Economic Development is located here. To stay up to date on the latest happenings between editions of Orange County Insight, like and subscribe. In the event of a natural disaster or other significant event, Orange County would use these official social media channels to keep subscribers informed. You should also sign up for alerts to your email or your mobile phone number to receive text or voicemail alerts directly from the Orange County Emergency Communications Center (9 - 1 - 1). Do that here.

We ’ re Here For You
