Posted by Debra Worley - email

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Brunswick County officials met Thursday to talk about evacuation procedures for those with special needs.

Around a dozen officials gathered at Brunswick Emergency Services Headquarters to discuss how to properly evacuate people who are in need of assistance.

So far there are 200 people in Brunswick County who will need help during an evacuation.

Officials will interview each of the 200 people to ensure they know the proper steps to take in emergency situations.

Authorities say this program is unlike any other in the United States.
