In 2006, after Hurricane Katrina, several immediate steps were taken by the County to improve recovery policies and procedures. An Interim Disaster Recovery Policies and Procedures Plan was adopted by County Council. The Beaufort County Disaster Recovery Plan was one of the first in the nation to be developed prior to a disaster and we have reviewed every possible scenario in order to return our government to its job of serving you and your families.

Success of the Beaufort County recovery effort is dependent upon the cooperation and partnership of the municipalities within our boundaries. These town and city governments each have their own individual plans as well as a commitment to our County plan as a whole. We appreciate the investment of time, talent and resources that demonstrate this allegiance.
