IRCC and Hurricane Matthew
A note from John Robinson, GM/COO
As I am sure many of you are aware, our area was threatened by a severe hurricane, Matthew. First and foremost, we, the staff of IRCC, took immediate action to ensure our community would be as safe and secure as possible.
Working together, we prepared for the worse and the IRCC employees and residents went into emergency mode, utilizing all help to get hurricane shutters installed on residential homes and corporate buildings. We kept lines of communication open though Channel 732 closed circuit television bulletin board and by email.
The corporate staff stayed overnight in the Administration building to be available prior to and immediately after the passing of the storm.
We got lucky as the storm shifted approximately 20 miles east, most likely saving us from serious damage. Other good news was throughout the storm where winds did reach 80 mph the community never lost power. After the storm passed, the IRCC employees were out very quickly, working hard to ensure every home was inspected and repairs completed or scheduled if immediate repairs were not possible. They also worked hard to get shutters down or at least to remove enough so that the home owner could live safely in the home.
In a very short period of time, everything was back to normal in the Club and all the amenities including golf were up and running. Sunday brunch was served, and residents were able to get together and socialize.
I cannot put in words how impressed I was last week with the IRCC employees and the residents of IRCC in the way things were handled. Everyone was calm, courteous, and extremely helpful.
This is but one more reason why everyone loves living at IRCC.
