 Acts Communities Prepared for Hurricane Season  Yes, it is that time of year again. Following an eventful 2018 hurricane season, which featured ferocious storms Florence and Michael, top forecasters expect this season (June 1-November 30, 2019) to be “slightly below- average” due to a weak El Niño. Nevertheless, Acts communities extensively prepare for these unwanted events, such as recent Hurricane Dorian, with highly-detailed checklists and communication protocols. Each location has satellite phones in the event that communication towers and phone lines are disabled. If a storm threatens a community, our plans are initiated with the full support of our community and corporate leadership teams who remain on site until the threat has passed. While the impact of a hurricane can be devastating, residents and their loved ones can take comfort knowing that Acts is well equipped to weather the storms, and assure our residents safety, comfort and security before, during and after a storm.  Acts Welcomes New Board Members Acts Retirement-Life Communities recently welcomed three new members to its board of directors: James Worth, Larry Marr and Daniel Lawson. The Acts Board represents a diverse group of volunteer members who bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the governance of Acts. Board members, including three residents, serve the Acts organization faithfully without compensation and embrace the company’s mission, purpose and values in providing senior living services. “We are very fortunate to have three such qualified individuals join our board of directors,” said Acts Board Chairman Dr. John Esterhai, Jr. “James, Daniel and Larry bring a wealth of business and leadership experience that will be a benefit to the Acts Governance team as we continue to enhance our mission and position ourselves for the future of senior living services.” You can read more about these individuals in the Meet the Acts Board feature in this edition of Friends & Neighbors.
