ROCKINGHAM — Gov. Roy Cooper visited Richmond County early Monday afternoon to thank first responders for their efforts during Hurricane Florence as he continues to tour affected areas.

The governor was greeted by Emergency Services Director Donna Wright and County Manager Bryan Land as he walked into the county Emergency Services Complex.

Wright gave him a very brief history of how the building came about as she led him to a conference room where photos of the county’s roads damaged during the storm were projected onto a screen. 

She also told them how her department helped take the 911 loads from other counties that lost communications.

“I really appreciate you guys stepping up and doing what you needed to do,” Cooper told Wright and the other first responders in the room, which included Sheriff James Clemmons and Rockingham’s police and fire chiefs, Billy Kelly and Harold Isler.
