Fire! Disaster Planning and Response in North Carolina

Just weeks before a fire broke out in the Chatham County Court in North Carolina, staff met to complete a Pandemic Continuity of Operations Plan (P-COOP). Input for the plan was gathered from judges, clerks of court, magistrates, and others. Originally designed to ensure that courts remain open and accessible for business should a pandemic occur, the P-COOP was effective for this emergency situation and can serve as an example for others.
