CBO Advice for Purchasing During an Emergency

In anticipation of Hurricane Florence, the CBO created a one-pager with targeted advice regarding planning for and making purchases during times of emergency. The University and College recognize that individuals within our College/County Extension may need to make immediate purchasing decisions in preparation for and response to the storm. Please take a moment to read the handout and contact your Business Liaison with any questions.
