A flow chart of needed steps was then developed to identify how the Town of Carrboro would address mitigation and recovery. Department Directors will be responsible for developing department specific plans and maintaining them. Additionally, Hazard or Incident Specific Supplements will remain in an electronic folder for access by Unified Command in the Emergency Operations Center.
