Important Disaster Preparation Information

It’s that time of year again when the threat of a hurricane making landfall in North Carolina becomes part of our lives. We thought we would take this opportunity to share some important information that you will need in the event of an emergency.

If anyone has any problems with damage to public records at their offices, please call us as soon as you can for any advice or assistance. If you get water in your building, you have 48 hours before mold grows. You must act quickly. If you wait a month, there will be little we can do to assist you.
