25 Feb Community Emergency Response Planning
Summer Storm Season Has Arrived Storm season in Fearrington Village has arrived! While we very rarely experience hurricanes here, we often experience strong storms and occasionally hurricane remnants. Power outages may result, lasting hours to days. It is time to prepare. Emergency preparation guidelines can be found on page 10 of the Fearrington Village Directory and Handbook or on the FHA website. (Remember to log in first.)
Your FHA has updated The Gathering Place to serve as a cooling station for those choosing to remain in their homes during these outages. The Gathering Place is powered by a generator. Multiple outlets will be provided for electronics charging; refrigeration is available for medicine storage; first aid kits are available for minor injuries; and energy bars are available. The Gathering Place is not an emergency shelter. If you choose to go to a shelter, these will be established by the NC Department of Emergency Management and the American Red Cross in locations outside of Fearrington Village. If you have questions, please contact Steve Stewart, director of Health, Safety, & Security. His contact information is below, on the FHA website, and in the Directory.

IMPORTANT: For any village-based emergency response to be effective, we urge all residents to return the completed Voluntary Emergency Information Registration Form (choose one format below). If there have been recent changes in your household regarding the needs and capabilities of any resident(s), be sure to complete and turn in a new form so the content will be up to date!
- Voluntary Emergency Information Registration (Fill in on-line version) Used to register the needs and capabilities of residents during emergency conditions. This information is a vital resource in case of an emergency.
- Voluntary Emergency Information Registration (Print and fill in by hand version) Used to register the needs and capabilities of residents during emergency conditions. This information is a vital resource in case of an emergency.
- Also see the information about the FILE OF LIFE, which we encourage ALL residents to have on the refrigerator for easy access by EMT responders. The magnetic FILE OF LIFE envelope and the information card insert is available FREE of charge at the FHA office during business hours.
