In Guilford County Government This Week

Guilford County Emergency Services conducted a county-wide Hurricane Exercise on Tuesday, June 26th and Wednesday, June 27th to evaluate the Guilford County Emergency Operations Plan, agency plans and policies, and the Web EOC Critical Incident Management program. The exercise included participants from other various city/county departments and allied agencies. The training exercise provided opportunities for participants to improve their skills and knowledge in carrying out their respective duties when dealing with large scale incidents that will impact Guilford County.

On Wednesday, June 27th, the Department of Social Services had a welcome reception for Mr. Robert Williams, the new Director of DSS. Outgoing DSS Board members, Dr. Joan Matthews and Mrs. Carlvena Foster were also recognized for their years of service. I attended this event along with Commissioners Parks and Davis.
