  • Disaster Response Network Activated in South Carolina. In support of its Members, First Responders, and other emergency personnel in South Carolina, ICC has activated its Disaster Response Network (DRN) to assist with recovery efforts following massive flooding in the state. Between Oct. 1-6, South Carolina received record amounts of rainfall and as of Friday, Oct. 9, the death toll from the flooding stood at 17 with an estimated $1 billion in damages. DRN professionals who are available to volunteer should contact Roger Lowe with the State Department of Labor, Licensing & Regulation (LLR) by email at roger.lowe@llr.sc.gov. Please include dates and times you are available as well as proof of ICC certifications. Please note that reimbursements for expenses incurred will need to be obtained through the Federal Emergency Management Agency and not the LLR or local jurisdictions. Lowe said some jurisdictions are currently working with local hotels to negotiate reduced room rates.
